A Twist on Domain/Name Registration..
Clearly, PGP Key Verification wand the like were not functional 'that' week.. :) "Whose Web Site Is This?" By Thomas L. Friedman, New York Times, August 27, 1999 TAIPEI, Taiwan-You just knew something like this would happen. China, unable so far to occupy Taiwan on land, has done it in cyberspace. The Internet address Taiwan.com was recently claimed and registered by China.com, an Internet portal that is partially owned by China's state-run Xinhua news agency. According to The Asian Wall Street Journal, several hundred Taiwanese professors and lawmakers have petitioned the Taiwan government to reclaim the Taiwan.com domain name by taking the Nasdaq-traded China.com to court in the U.S. for misrepresentation. One country, two Web sites. Not good.
