Gotta read the fine print. Some registrars specify damages like that in the TOS (Terms of Service) if they receive complaints, others restrict how man people you can email. Even though his service was supposedly “free” it meets the definition of commercial and unsolicited, aka spam. He could just transfer his domain to a new registrar. The service their cancelling isn’t his domain name, it’s the management of the registration info and use of their DNS servers. I haven’t seen GoDaddy’s TOS, but a registrar I had previously was similarly strict.
