RFI ON DOMAIN TASTING 16 QUESTION REVIEW
Dear Sirs: Please find our responses in regards to the RFI involving 16 questions at this site http://www.icann.org/announcements/announcement-2-10aug07.htm: 1. G. Intellectual Property Rights Owner Representative 2. All of the above since Domain Tasting could be a tool that could reduce costs if someone determines that a domain registration will not be profitable. 3. None 4. If there is no cross reference with registered trademarks worldwide, this could be used as an illegal means to register domain names that are already well-known marks on behalf of the real owners. 5. No. In Costa Rica there is no such practice available at the Academia Nacional de Ciencias-entity in charge of domain management and registration in our country. 6. We have one Client whose main mark was registered as domain name in the form of INCAE.INFO. We have no idea if the current owner used Domain Tasting or not when it registered it. 7. No. 8. None. 9. N/A 10. N/A 11. Of course. If the service is for free, everyone would be interested in trying it out. 12. Yes. There should be always a cost involved. 13. The fee should be high instead (US$100) so that unlawful use could be prevented. 14. As addressed in question 6, one client tried to registered and discovered that the name had already been taken by an entity that sells domain names. Its reputation in the business education field-main practice of this entity-is being affected by the wrongful image that the site INCAE.INFO is bringing on its service provision image (high quality education in the field of business management mainly). 15. None. 16. It would be highly appreciate if the time response frame could be improved. We entered a claim in the Internic website on Aug. 23 and have not received so far a response as how to solve the situation that we addressed. Any additional information or comments, please do not hesitate to contact us.
