||Sunrise Challenges & Resulting Domain "Transfers"
One can only successfully "Transfer" the disputed domain to oneself if you have
a trademark that abides by the Sunrise rules, otherwise the domain will be returned
to Afilias after the dispute period if noone with a trademark disputes said domain.
above statement is supported by the following WIPO website, which is quoted below...
What remedies are available to a Sunrise Challenger?
The remedies available to
a Challenger are limited to requiring the cancellation of the domain name registration
or the transfer of the domain name registration to the Challenger.
Challenger who has requested transfer of the domain name will be given an opportunity
to register the domain name in its name within 10 days of the notification of the
authorization code (see E 5, and Paragraph 11(b) of the Rules). The Challenger, in
its turn, will have to assert in its registration agreement that it complies with
the sunrise registration conditions, i.e., that it has a qualified trademark which
would have qualified as a basis for registration during the original sunrise period
(Paragraph 4(j) of the Policy). Such a subsequent registration can itself be challenged
by others under the Sunrise Policy and Rules."
