The names listed on my website are simply ones some people say they would like to
investigate, so that any uncertainty about authenticity can be dispelled.
just e-mailed me from Spy Productions, asking me to remove spy.info from the list
of names on www.theinternetchallenge.com.
I have taken him at his word, that it
is a genuine Trademarked name, and removed it from the list on trust. What I don't
quite understand is that he didn't ask me to remove the other name he registered
through his own company : beach.info
I've asked him to confirm that all the details
on the WHOIS, including the TM number, are accurate and correct - so I can feel happy
about removing that name as well
The whole point about my site is that honest people
have nothing to hide because the truth is the truth, and people with genuine Trademarks
know there is a process to protect them.
So I invite Lars of Spy Productions to
confirm to this forum that the details he submitted for beach.info are all correct.
might also like to inform the forum: who provided the TM numbers for the other 40
generic names claimed through Spy Productions that I've listed (presumably there
are many more)?
This case is now in the hands of ICANN, Afilias and Tucows. I hope
the truth is that each of those individuals who registered through Lars/Spy Productions
submitted their own GENUINE TM number themselves.
If that turns out to be the proven
truth, they should each be very happy indeed, because they stand to get great domains!
If there's nothing to hide, then just say so, and we can all rejoice in the truth.
am planning to e-mail 100s of Sunrise applicants in 24 hours time to ask them to
surrender their claims (if they are wrong) so that Afilias can do the right thing
and delete them.
At the very least, if they surrender before Landrush, this will
make Afilias and not them, the party who are responsible to answer any charges (unless
Afilias do the obvious thing and delete ineligible claims at once).
In the same
spirit of openness and truth, I look forward to hearing from Lars about beach.info
tell the truth!
Confirm that the claim is accurate and honest and correct!
