Again, I will forward your note on. I have read your postings to ICANN Watch
and and wanted to clarify one issue regarding registrar-reserved
names. In reference to your post to
>>" can imagine the way we feel when we see the evidence of your -
Afilias and ICANN's - promoting fraudulent Sunrise application through
Afilias's Registrar Agreements.

Looks to me that your registrars were permitted to push themselves to the
head of the queue of fraudulent applicants.

Our contract with ICANN allows Afilias-authorized registrars the opportunity
to register up to 10 names that are current trademarks, trade names or
service marks and that are currently owned by the registrar in either .COM
or .NET. These names that have been reserve were hand verified at the
registry, and are listed in our WHOIS as "Registrar-reserved.", to which you are referring in the above text, is an example of
one of these names and thus, is not a fraudulent registration.

Best regards,
