||Many "Real" .info Registrations under Sunrise
While there are maybe a few
fraudelent attempts to register .info's under the sunrise provisions, many registrations
that some people here are referring to as fruadelent appear to be errors made by
the registrants. For instance, i noticed that some .info's had the person's
first name and last name (where the trademark name should have been). Since
the trademark date and number appear in order, it appears that these individuals
may have mistakenly filled out their own name instead of the name of their trademark.
Therefore, these registrations are not fake - the person just filled them out wrong,
which shouldn't be that suprising since many of these people were from 3rd world
countries where obviously english is not their 1st language...it's like us trying
to register when everything is written in French or Italian.
As for the few possible
fraudelent attempts, Afilias already as a process under place, to award the domain
to the rightful trademark owner.
