        This is why GERMAN.INFO, DOMAIN.INFO, CORPORATE.INFO, etc. got Registered by their member Registrars.


Look at Appendix J, item 5 of their Agreement.

5. REGISTRAR DOMAIN NAMES

Each Authorized Registrar that enters into a Registry-Registrar Agreement with Registry Operator at least ten (10) days prior to the beginning of the Land Rush Period shall have the right to register up to ten (10) second level domain names ("Registrar Registrations") in the Registry TLD, provided that the desired Registrar Registration (i) was not reserved or previously registered, (ii) is a trade name, trademark or service mark of the Authorized Registrar, and (iii) is identical to a name registered by the Authorized Registrar in either the .com or .net TLD.
