Why We Will Not Be Registering easyDNS.SUCKS - blog.easydns.org
If you're not immersed in the naming business you may find the jargon in it hard to understand. The basic upshot is this: the IPC believes that the mechanisms that were enacted to protect trademark holders during the deluge of new TLD rollouts are being gamed by the .SUCKS TLD operator to extort inflated fees from trademark holders.

Confusion reigns over three “hijacked” ccTLDs
This kind of silliness is only likely to increase as the number of TLDs increases (and they become more trivial).
What seems to be happening here is that [two companies involved] have had some kind of dispute, and that as a result the registrants and the reputation of three countries’ ccTLDs have been harmed. Very amateurish.

The Background Dope on DHS Recent Seizure of Domains
according to this, the US Dept of Homeland Security is "seizing" domains through a back-channel to Verisign, since they directly control the .com TLD's nameservers. Expect to see dodgy sites start using non-US TLDs, names in multiple TLDs a la Pirate Bay, and eventually IPs instead of DNS records
