        Some very misleading information has been posted in the past couple of weeks about who the bad guys are in the Sunrise Generic Registrations.

I know of at least one Registrar who advised clients incorrectly and processed pre reg applications incorrectly during the Sunrise Period - that should have been held until Landrush.

The same Registrar included false Trademark details in the applications that now make it appear as though the applicant was claiming Trademark rights - even though they weren't.

Here is an excerpt from the page that the link posted at the bottom of this text box will open:

"Submitting your domain name during the Sunrise period gives you a good chance of securing the domain you want. Due to the trademark restrictions we would recommend that you only apply for generic domain names during this period, i.e. 'sport.info' or 'internet.info'. Speculative registrations that infringe trademark holders, e.g.: 'mcdonalds.info' could result in your domain name being revoked at a later date without refund of your registration fee."

Following this advice would lead to your name being bandied around in this and many other forums.

Have a nice day.
