Alexis Rosen of Panix was on the phone earlier today with the company
attorney for melbourneit -- reputedly he was informed that even if the
police called, they would not do anything about the problem until
Monday their time.

Alexis is a bit on the upset side, naturally -- his company is in
serious trouble because of very obvious fraud, and waiting a few days
isn't really something he can afford to do. (If you look at the whois
records now in place for panix.com they're pretty clearly the result
of fraudulent activity. There is a pretty clear attempt there to
maximally obscure who has stolen the domain name -- this is clearly
not an innocent mistake.)
