and just how does what you describe deal with a personal network behind
someone's firewall...

go back and re-read what i typed!!! i was basicaly saying there's no law
that prevents you from calling the machines behind your firewall whatever
you want. but that if you try to put dns servers on the public net, that try
to resolve already used names to your machine (or someone else's) then
you're going to get blasted...

so, i still say, where's this law for private networks???

Well, let's see, I'll bet you know all this...

How about electronic identity theft at various different levels?

If you are a really big ISP, you could do a DNS denial of service by making
your nameservers authoritative for a domain or domains you do not own and
when it is found out go

Oops, our bad. Did we make a typo in our dns?

Can do same thing with BGP4...

How about setup systems to spoof domains and spam from them?

Etc snore ad nausem
