    Dear Declan McCullagh,
    I publish a site called Textism. A reader wrote suggesting I draw your
    attention -- and perhaps the attention of your mailing list -- to a
    domain hijacking issue.
    A friend of mine, Leslie Harpold, published a well-respected blog/site
    called at hoopla.com. A few days ago her domain was illegally
    transferred to someone named Hubert Sarah in Berlin, seemingly on the
    basis of one fax to NetSol.
    Some details are here: http://www.textism.com/article/490
    Today's update is here: http://www.textism.com/article/494
    I understand this sort of thing happens with some regularity, but the sheer 
    unwillingness of NetSol to fixing a breach of their own contract may prove 
    to be of interest to your list.
    Thank you,
    - Dean Allen
