They have a bunch of people who do legal work in different countries to
determine if people who register a real name have rights to it.
They claim it's actually pretty difficult. Sounds like a pain to me...

Call me stupid, but i don't actually understand why it would take
317 people to maintain a URN database. 40? 50, maybe? All i
can tell that they do is map short names to URLs, and charge people
a lot of money for the privilege of getting a database entry.
What else are they doing that i don't know about?
Go ahead, educate me about reality; i could use a lesson.
