Re: HTML email, was Re: Phishing and BGP Blackholing
"Proper education" cannot be achieved ever. Who should have the rights to MCDONALDS.COM or FORD.COM? A large multinational corporation or the entity which set-up an on-line presence first? Assuming here that someone isn't domain squatting or abusing trademarks, for example, FORD's hamburger company advertising automobiles. Trademarks in themselves do not grant domain rights, just exclusive use of a name as a PARTICULAR type of business. That is the real problem.
Phishing problems will not be corrected without multinational government coooperation (which I fear for other reasons) because the problems cross teritorial boarders. I received a clever phishing attempt "from" Chase Manhattan Bank directing me to the domain chaserewards.com. This is more a matter of companies informing their customers which domain names are valid.
