Subject: You Are Correct....What a Find!


Jeweyjewman, what an unbelieveable find!  I just have to repeat it because it is so astounding:

As you note, only "Owners of any current trademark or service mark that have national effect prior to October 2, 2000 are eligible to register a domain name during the Sunrise period."

In contrast, "Celebratehumanity" is nothing more than a pending trademark application, at least under the given serial number of 75933196.  It therefore is INVALID under Sunrise.

Even so, Afilias proudly touts this very domain name in its August 23rd press release!  As they wrote:

"A number of global brands have also registered their taglines, including:,,,, and"

You gotta love it!
