TL:DR - Microsoft convinces a judge that no-ip.com redirection is used for malware. Judge gives domains to Microsoft who dumps the entire service.

Unfortunately, Microsoft never contacted us or asked us to block any subdomains, even though we have an open line of communication with Microsoft corporate executives.
Microsoft Digital Crimes Unit? So Microsoft is the Internet police? So because they are the police and a company and malware is hurting their company, they can use their police force to do whatever they want?

Such questions.???

By the same logic, can we prove that hotmail.com sends out malware emails and get a judge to give us control over the domain?
