Thanks to commentator 09F9 1102, a link to Media Statement on Behalf of Dynadot in re: Wikileaks Litigation:
The following constitutes Dynadot’s response to the Feb. 15 court order in the case of Bank Julius Baer & Co., Ltd v. Wikileaks, et al., which is pending in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California in San Francisco.
“This case raises First Amendment issues that are for the Courts to decide, not my client, Dynadot,” stated Garret D. Murai of Wendel, Rosen, Black & Dean, LLP, who represents Dynadot. “The only agreement by Dynadot was to comply with the Court’s previous order to preserve evidence, including preventing Wikileaks from transferring its domain name to another registrar and from changing its account settings – essentially, to preserve the status quo. Dynadot did not agree to remove the name server settings for wikileaks.org or to produce any information. This was requested by Julius Baer and granted by the Court.”
“It was explained to the Court that Dynadot only provides domain name registration services to Wikileaks. Dynadot is not the DNS provider nor is it the web host provider that maintains the content of wikileaks.org,” explains Kathryn Chow Han, in-house legal counsel for Dynadot. “Our company does not take a position on the merits of this litigation. However, if Julius Baer is concerned with the posting of its confidential documents on the wikileaks.org web site, it could have sought a more narrow remedy than seeking to have the entire wikileaks.org web site shut down.”
