You can adopt a simple procedure to eliminate virtually
all fraudulent .info applications.
Most of the fraudsters are easy to identify
and a small number of them account for most of the bogus applications. Simply remove
all their applications and things will look much better.
Now deal with the rest.
THIS STAGE IS CRUCIAL. In the start-up phase run the preregistration queues as before
and allocate all domains not taken in the sunrise period. But instead of discarding
all applications for which there was a sunrise application, keep one as a stand-by.
Supposing no trademark holders come forward in the challenge phase, then comes
the role of the stand-by. If he feels the sunrise application is fraudulent, he can
challenge it and if successful win the name.
This simple procedure means those
who preregistered get the chance they expected and very few fraudsters will profit
from their false applications.
Optimally keep a list of several stand-bys, so that
if the first stand-by fails to identify a fraudulent application then a second or
third are sure to do so.
