Pressure your DNS provider to apply a patch and enable a feature if possible.
That's a start, but it definately isn't a solution. Verisign does not own the .com and .net domains. Verisign needs to be reminded of its responsibilities and how easily they could be taken away. They should also have realized the plethora of legal problems this will create for them (think trademarks amoung others).
Common sense would dictate that Verisign will remember (or be forcefully reminded of) its responsibilities and put this silly action behind them. Unfortunately common sense is in short supply these days.
If you're truly interested in preventing these type of abuses in the future (and fixing this situation) I'd suggest getting involved immediately. Write your representatives (standard rules apply: be nice, coherent, and know what you're talking about) and take further steps as necessary.
