||I have NO problem, It seems YOU have a PROBLEM
Firstly, I didn't register
any domain during the sunrise and I take offence for you to suggest or imply that
Secondly, "The Internet Challenge " is not spotting only suspicious
regs., ie. no TM# or not proper TM#. That's the problem with this site - putting
domains which have real TMs on it. Check it out for yourself, run sex.info in the
USPTO.gov database, it is a real trademark, yet it is included on the site.
Now, if you had a real trademark would you want to defend it, do you think that person
will enjoy defending themselves? Have you ever been to court or charged with a crime
- do you think that those people enjoyed defending themselves even if they could
prove their innocence?
I think not. Also, in this case, being challenged
does subject oneself to a cost of $295. Do you think that these people enjoy
paying an additional $295 just because it is posted on "the internet challenge" and
therefore it has been highlighted as a suspect registration? Next time, think
before you write!
Finally, this may be hard for you to comprehend but Afilias does
not need our help, they know and can easily find out all suspect TMs by performing
alogrithms with various databases, along with parameters (ie. that is they can find
all TMS registered after Oct.2,2000).
The internet challenge website is fulfilly
its own agenda (to get as many domains as it can) and has no credibilty.
