Domain Name Fees Illegal

J. Paul Reed sent us this article where you can read that a judge has declared DNS fees to be an illegal tax. There are some minor mistakes in the article (they quote the current price as being $30 for to years, and claim it has been this way since '95) but it's still kinda odd. On one hand, the govt has $23 million for the next generation of the Intenet, on the other hand, it may have been illegal for them to get that money in the first place. Personally I don't care if I get a refund on my domain name, I'd rather that money helped build a new net infrastructure, but I have a few more domains I'd love to register if they were free.
