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.
