One of the panelist Bret Fausett at NamesCon forum on Legal Issues per DNW -

Fausett also told the story of domain registrar LeadNetworks in Mumbai. LeadNetworks thought it found a great way to hold on to cybersquatted domain names. In India litigation takes forever. So whenever someone filed a UDRP against a domain LeadNetworks was holding, they’d just file suit in court in India. This would tie the domain up and the complainant would never get the domain.


But Bret pointed out that you’re never out of the reach of laws elsewhere in the world. When attorney David Steele went after some Verizon domain names, he wasn’t going to get stuck in court in India. He sued LeadNetworks in the central district of California, arguing that’s where Lead Networks got its registrar accreditation (since ICANN is there). The registrar was seized, and Bret was the court appointed receiver who had to wind things down and get domain names to their rightful owners.
