Hm. InterNIC is a trademark owned by the *government* - according to this
story. But going to lands you at NetSol's website.

IANAL, of course, but that seems to me like a possible case of trademark
infringement. I do know that US intellectual property laws require a
trademark owner to defend their trademark in court or they will lose it.

What a shame it would be if the government hauled NetSol into court.
