Why ICANN is wrong to claim Employ Media has breached its Registry Agreement

On February 27, 2011, the General Counsel for the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) issued a Notice of Breach of Registry Agreement to Employ Media. This unwarranted and unprecedented action was taken without any discussion with Employ Media and despite prior approval (twice) by the ICANN Board of Directors for the implementation of these fully disclosed operational plans.
