ยท When a domain name is locked pursuant to a pending UDRP, but passes its expiration date (without renewal), do you allow the domain name to expire? Or do you wait until the UDRP proceeding and 15 day "wait period" are complete?

I don't know if this is a "trick question", but this subject is covered in the Expired Domain Deletion Policy, which is integrated into the Registrar Accreditation Agreement, and which prescribes action in this situation:

http://www.icann.org/en/resources/registrars/accreditation/eddp In the event that a domain which is the subject of a UDRP dispute is deleted or expires during the course of the dispute, the complainant in the UDRP dispute will have the option to renew or restore the name under the same commercial terms as the registrant. If the complainant renews or restores the name, the name will be placed in Registrar HOLD and Registrar LOCK status, the WHOIS contact information for the registrant will be removed, and the WHOIS entry will indicate that the name is subject to dispute. If the complaint is terminated, or the UDRP dispute finds against the complainant, the name will be deleted within 45 days. The registrant retains the right under the existing redemption grace period provisions to recover the name at any time during the Redemption Grace Period, and retains the right to renew the name before it is deleted.

The question boils down to "Do you comply with the Registrar Accreditation Agreement?" and apparently seeks an admission that the registrar does not.

Procedure in the event of domain expiration during a UDRP is well defined, not discretionary, and not within the scope of this group.
