that is WIPO and Afilias will
profit lot of money from this "challenge walzer".
I just read the WIPO rules and
actually all the challengers, including multiple challengers for the same name, pay
a not refundable fee of $75.
In addition the "winning challenger" deposit additional
$220 that will be refunded only if he wins the challend AND THE RESPONDER PAID HIS
QUOTE OF $295.
So if the false trademark holder simply do not respond to your
challenge, as very probable in for most cases, you will pay additional $295 for your
name to wipo while Afilias will get double registration fee.
It is now clear why
they did not avoid the "Sunrise Fraud"?
