||The best solution?
I suppose Afilias can't just change the rules for
sunrise now. So, perhaps the only reasonable solution is for Afilias to:
cancel all registrations that obviously violates the sunrise rules (trademark year
2040, number 123456789, name not matching domain name...). This must be done so that
these names are available in the start-up-period.
2. Let the rest stand and eventually
go live. (Registrations that are correct can't wait.)
3. Start investigating ALL
sunrise registrations. It can't be that hard. They have got the trademark country
and number. If there isn't a open database there sure is a trademark office in that
country. Then, according to existing sunrise rules (I hope), they can immediately
cancel any false registration and release the name for start-up/open registration.
the names should actually have been included in the start-up period, but I don't
quite see how Afilias can solve that one now. It's a pity that many people have payed
money to get a chance at these names in the start-up.
