VeriSign to Take Down Malware Sites?

This is actually an interesting approach: VeriSign Proposes Takedown Procedures and Malware Scanning for .Com. This leads to the discussion I have so often: What is more important? The single website or the greater good? Now, do not get me wrong: I see the risks of VeriSign taking down microsoft.com because a blog hosted there spreads malware or facebook.com because somebody was able to host malware. It might even lead to competitive challenges. I completely get this and the processes linked to it have to be clear, transparent and need a dispute resolution before the takedown. But I guess that VeriSign gets this as well.

The reactions in the comments are worth reading as well…
