UPDATE: due to lack of clarity in the initial question, I have completely revised it. I, hopefully, made it more comprehensible now.
This makes me curious to know:
Why aren't this domains legally seized from their owners and/or shut down?
- As ICANN is located in the US, I'd expect it to operate under the US laws. Does it's authority is restricted, when dealing with other country's domain?
Are there any special "Total internet freedom" laws in Tongo, or they just do not care that their TLD is used (?abused) in such way?
I do not want to link to exact sites here (I believe for obvious reasons). But I know a number of content-sharing sites, which were legally deprived of their domain name, and had to move to another one (not all of them, but some moved to
.to domain). With that said, I have never heard
.to domain to be legally taken away, in alike cases.
