Take a look at this email a few angry registrants have|
sent me. If this isn't
blatant encouragement of fraud,
I don't know what is. From what I understand by
an earlier post, the head of this registrar
submitted bad applications too. In
fact, you will find
countless fake trademark applications sent in by this
registrar 5007-TU. From the confidence
expressed in the following email, you have
how involved Afilias is in all
this with encouraging fraud themselves:

The time has come everyone, SpyProductions is making

WHY SHOULD I PLACE MY DOMAIN IN THE SUNRISE?
Why not! Did you know that during land rush your
odds of getting any of your
names is less than 5% with
any registrar! However during sunrise your odds
SpyProductions is as high as 80%. Why?
Because the registry is not policing
registrations. They have instituted a plan to allow
after a registration but those challenges
will only be upheld for two reasons:
-One if you register a trade marked name,
-Two if you register a name with no intent to
To safeguard against the second potential challenge,
IMPLORE you to put up an “under construction” page
for any domain(s) you successfully
protects you from that type of challenge, unless
you are challenged as a speculator.
Furthermore, a challenge will cost the would-be
$295.00. That cost alone will discourage
virtually all challenges, especially
challenger doesn’t have a trademark!
You must ask yourself: Is it worth $105.00 to
another $220.00 if challenged?
The answer is clear when
you weigh it against not
having the name at all. Because you can bet at
the name will be gone, or you will be left
with only a 5% chance of success in

register domains at the earliest possible moment.
That time is
sunrise. Remember anyone can register at
sunrise. The people that
should definitely NOT
register at sunrise are those that want to register a

whatsoever to believe that
your desired name(s) is
trademarked, then contact firstname.lastname@example.org
remove those names from sunrise.
