Rachel - you poor thing - who are you going to complain to?

They are ALL corrupt gluttons - ALL with their snouts in the trough.

Do you think that Secretary Evans, of the United States Department of Commerce, does not know what is going on?

Do you think he does not know that they are all filling their pockets with trademarked domains?

ICANN have give Afilias the rights to take thousands of trademarked domains.

Afililias is squatting on UK trademarks for SEARCH: 1056333, 1109576, 1291170, 1380291, 1380292, 1436692, 1436693, & 1459763.

Afilias have - about.info - squatting on UK trademark E1216811 - ABOUT
Afilias have - address.info - squatting on UK trademark 1443487 - ADDRESS
Afilias have - directory.info - squatting on UK trademark 276801 - DIRECTORY
ETC. ETC.

More of their propaganda -

Quote

Afilias responded to critics earlier this month by saying it would take legal action through arbitration, starting in late December, against anyone who submits suspicious-looking trademark numbers into its domain registration database.

*** They should check their own domains first !!!!!!!

More business for WIPO $$$$$$

I will keep on saying it - Sunrise is all a load of bull* propaganda - it will solve nothing.

Apple computers will still protect and make claim to every Apple.[anything] - even though they share word with 727 others in the USA alone (plus all those in 200+ countries).

name.class.country.reg will solve 'consumer confusion', 'trademark conflict' and stop anybody 'passing off'.

Apple.info could be redirected to apple.record.uk.reg, without Apple Computers sending in the legal team for trademark violations.
