        According to the information in this article, if the challenger wins, he gets the disputed name! It does not go back to the pool. It also seems that the musical-chairs game outlined on Domebase.com is also the order of the day.

This raises a few big questions about Afilias' intentions with regards to challenging fraudsters.
-Is it true that the challenger gets the name? If that's not the case shouldn't WIPO include a disclaimer to the effect? 
-We need to understand what SPECIFIC criteria that Afilias will use to make that judgment.
-How much time they are affording themselves to finish their own challenges. Is this an open ended process?
-Are Landrush registrations also open for the same challenge process? If so then what was the point of the Sunrise to begin with?

Quite a few questions and very little in terms of guidance from Afilias and we know what this means more hard-earned-cash being wasted by confused customers. That is the one thing I will admit Afilias has excelled at so far.
