I address difficult
registrar reserve issue in nearby post. For your second issue...
not feasible. This is because... ... 2)There will be numerous frivolous challenges
against legitimately (by ICANN's definition but not mine!) registered trademarks...it
would be an administrative nightmare!"
Do you agree that there would be few frivolous challenges
at a cost of $295 per challenge? Do you agree that there would be many frivolous
challenges at a cost of $0 per challenge? If you are to both of these -- then
would you agree that there is some dollar amount greater than $0 and less than $295
which would properly balances incentives?
As for administrative
nightmares... I think we are headed for one with the status quo. Afilias trying
to sort through names to figure out which ones to challenge without challenging too
many ($ and getting legit TM holders upset) or too few. Registrars trying to
figure out how to answer irate Land Rush applicants who paid money for names that
were taken by sunrise squatters... even, I have heard, sometimes paying that money
after the sunrise squatter registration was done due to WHOIS fluctuations... etc.
my two cents, Thanks for the post!
