Sorry Afternic - But for a sad laugh or for evidence of what may be the worst advertising error any of us are are ever going to see - go to the register.com homepage and look at the top, right hand corner - in the New Products and Services banner.

You will see - PROTECT YOUR TRADEMARK
              - SAFEGUARD WITH .INFO

NO NO NO register.com, NO NO NO Afilias, NO NO NO ICANN

                I DON'T THINK SO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

the banner should read - PROTECT YOUR FRAUDULENT TRADEMARK
                             - SAFEGUARD WITH .INFO

On that point - SAFEGUARD  and .INFO are words that should not appear in the same sentence.

I assume by their silence that ICANN and Afilias would disagree, but then they are still probably in the cloud-kuckoo-land they were in when they settled on the Sunrise IP rights challenge conditions - take the fraudsters money, five years registration fees sure as hell beats two - and stuff the Landrush applicants! (I note in a posting that TUKOWS walked away from the committee table at that stage - to TUKOWS credit - forseeing the big trouble that the model you chose would bring).

Please come back to earth, please come to your senses, please determine a path of action other than the one that Afilias announced of the 15th.

Still hopeful of a happy (and equitable) ending.
