||Innocent Sunrise Squatters: What Can You Do?
document what led you to register during Sunrise by mistake, whether it be active
(e.g. e-mails encouraging Sunrise registration of generic words, registrars filling
in bogus information, websites that say that trademark details are "optional")or
passive (no request for trademark information, passive Sunrise registration).
No guarantees, but could help. If I were you, I sure would do my best to document
that I did not intentionally submit counterfeit trademark information to secure goods
2. Contact your registrar and Afilias, including documention and/or
explanation, and ask to have the registration cancelled immediately. If you wish,
you may copy ICANN on e-mails. You may also copy me at webmaster@DomeBase.com
if you wish. Even if your registration is not cancelled, this: may help to
document that the Sunrise Registration was not intentional on your part; and may
help to focus future action on other parties. As I get more examples of this
sort of thing, I will be better able to advocate giving innocent Sunrise registrants
the opportunity to cancel their registrations.
3. Advocate for the DomeBase
proposal. If adopted, your mistaken Sunrise Registration will not harm LandRushers
(anywhere near as much) and thus there is less cause for action against you.
4. Take heart that you have done the right thing.
