||Evidence of Sunrise Fraud
If you access ukreg.com
(the real company is fasthosts.com) and follow the .info pre-reg links as a member,
(as I am) you get the following information.
"During the Sunrise Period:
can apply for a .info domain name. Your application may optionally be accompanied
by the details of trademark which corresponds exactly with your chosen domain name."
on they say:-
"Due to the trademark restrictions we would recommend that you only
apply for generic domain names during this period, i.e. 'sport.info' or 'internet.info'.
Speculative registrations that infringe trademark holders, e.g.: 'mcdonalds.info'
could result in your domain name being revoked at a later date without refund of
your registration fee."
I contacted ukreg and fasthosts.com, but they gave me no
reply. So I contacted Tucows and told then one of their partners was giving
out false information. Their reply was:-
"Please refer to the information
What use was that? Why
did Tucows not contact fasthosts and it's other partner companies to stop this?
They were in charge of setting up the registry in the first place yet submitted false
trademark submissions themselves via their members. If you can't trust the
people in charge of the registry to get it right, who can you trust?
