Dan - I did read the story.

You do not realize the importance of ICANN actions.

Afilias have - about.info

They are squatting on UK trademark E1216811 - ABOUT

Afilias have - address.info

They are squatting on UK trademark 1443487 - ADDRESS

Afilias have - directory.info

They are squatting on UK trademark 276801 - DIRECTORY

ETC.

They are cybersquatting on these UK trademarks - have a look at the other 200+ countries.

Afilias' domain search.info is squatting on UK trademarks 1056333, 1109576, 1291170, 1380291, 1380292, 1436692, 1436693, & 1459763.

150 or 10,000 domains - numbers do not matter - what does though:

THERE IS ONE LAW FOR THEM AND ANOTHER FOR US

Every word is trademarked somewhere in the world - most many times over.

They now have to admit the TRUTH - domains are not trademarks and cannot be used as such.
