AlterNIC founder, Eugene Kashpureff, was arrested in Toronto, Canada, on US charges related to wire fraud last week. Kashpureff hijacked InterNIC's URL in July in protest against the monopoly over domain names held by Network Solutions (NSI), which runs InterNIC. As a result, surfers trying to get to www.internic.net were sent to Kashpureff's own site at www.alternic.net. He now faces deportation back to the US. Kashpureff is wanted by the FBI on several counts of wire fraud, despite settling with NSI and making a public apology about his actions. Kashpureff gained a significant amount of support for his actions, but many criticised them as "rash".
