"It's in our interest to make sure that dot-info sites go to legitimate trademark holders," said Roland LaPlante, Afilias' chief marketing officer, who described the decision as a way to protect dot-info's reputation on the eve of its planned launch in mid-September."

Why then did they not think of this - during the very long period since concept.

Do you all really believe this bull*?

Purely my own logical opinion, of course; they got what they wanted - maximum profit from sunrise period.

Obviously, dot-info's reputation is what it deserves to be - a load of crap.

From article; "After Dec. 26, Afilias itself plans to challenge suspicious-looking trademark claims through WIPO."

Why wait that long?

They could throw them out now - without going to WIPO.

Many are obvious frauds.

Generic words should be dismissed anyway - they have to be disclaimed under trademark law.
