Subject: Why Afilias must answer in court for "Locking in" invalid names


Why do Afilias insist on "Locking in" names which are transparently ineligible? What good reason is there for locking them in for 6 months when thousands were invalid from the start?

Why does Afilias not cancel and delete these names?

Failure to do so makes THEM negligent and liable (IMHO) for the damages and losses sustained by honest Landrush customers who are deprived of their product by Afilias's inaction and failure to take reasonable action to protect these customers (who are the victims of Afilias's own process and its inflexibility).

A court of law will shortly recognise this.

If Afilias has been requested to delete these transparently ineligible names and declines to do so, it is THEM who should (IMHO) accept the liability when this is brought to court.
