I keep seeing..

this action repeatedly being characterized as a lawsuit or legal action. It is not.

When anybody registers a domain name they agree to ICANN domain name registration policy. All that is happening is a policy dispute claim has been filed. It is an INTERNAL policy review and decision. ICANN will decide (through WIPO) if ICANN's registration policy has been violated by the current owners of ronpaul.com.

WIPO is an international advocacy group for intellectual property. They are not a court of law and they do not make policy. ICANN uses WIPO as a third party to make findings on the aspects of ICANN's policies that deal with intellectual property.

Again, no lawsuits here. No court of law. Just an internal policy determination of whether the owners of ronpaul.com violated ICANN's policies related to the domain name they registered through ICANN's system.
