Subject: They still don't get it


      It is actually far worse. Read the following carefully

"Shortly after the first queues of sunrise registrations were processed, it became evident that some registrants had submitted registrations that on their face did not qualify for registration in the sunrise period: many of the alleged trademarks did not exactly match the domain name registered, had dates that were after the 2 October 2000 cut-off, or had trademark numbers in an obviously wrong format.

While anyone can challenge a sunrise registration, under the supplemental challenge procedure announced today by Afilias, the registry itself will submit a challenge against any of these facially unqualified sunrise registrations that are not challenged by others. The names that are cancelled due to the registry's challenges will be returned to the pool of available names at a later time."

In short in order for a bogus .info registration to be challenged by the registry it has to be clearly fradulent. ie A date in the future, etc. A more subtle fraud will go unchallenged. For example a proper date, and a TM number in the right format. The key term they use is "facially unqualified sunrise registrations"

So the message is just don't make the fraud to obvious to spot.
