||Address Concern by Replacing Lock-Out With Warning
The concern is that potential Land Rush pre-applicants for names taken in Sunrise
Period that may be released due to challenge are locked out of pre-registration (for
some registrars?). |
This can be corrected by replacing the lock out with
a warning --
"This name has already been registered in the Sunrise Period.
The Land Rush winner will not win this name -- but will win the rights to (1) get
the name if successfully challenged by Afilias and available at the end of the Sunrise
challenge period or (2) to challenge a non-trademarked name at the end of the Sunrise
period and get it. If you still want to register this name for a chance to
win these rights, please continue."
There is precedent for this type of "message"
approach. (1) Register.com once just told you that a name was already registered,
now it gives you an option to send bid to owner if you wish (even though registration
not available). (2) As I understand it, .BIZ does not lock out TM names, but
rather warns people with a message that TM has been claimed and gives then option
The DomeBase Proposal will be revised to include this. Comments
