||Did 007 register names for themselves at Sunrise?
My understanding is that the Registrars and Afilias were contractually forbidden
to apply for/register names for themselves (except for up to 10 names that could
be "registrar reserved" if they were tradenames). You will see from a WHOIS check
of the list beneath that 007 names "registrar reserved" webex.info (along with 9
other 'interesting' names, as trading names of their company).|
I am a little confused
to note that there are several other names claimed with a webex e-mail address and
an 007 postal address for the registrant.
I don't know the answer and would welcome
clarification from 007 themselves if they want to explain on this forum. Did 007
register these names for their own company?
"Register Reserved" names (supposedly
"hand-checked" by Afilias staff) which are claimed as being in use as trading names
007NAMES webex.info < < < < < < used as e-mail by applicants
Other names applied for through 007 (check the first one,
for example, to note that the applicant is listed at the 007 address, with a webex
(007) e-mail address. Check others to see some similarities:
In all honesty, I am NOT saying these names are ineligible in any way. 007 MAY
have been acting on behalf of clients (the explanation offered for Joker.com for
their 333 great generic claims). I am merely raising the question, and seeking answers
from 007/Webex - since if registrars were ineligible to apply for names, and then
list their own address and e-mail details as applicants, you can see how this can
lead to confusion, doubt or fraud.
Another example of Afilias failing to police
their own rules with sufficient stringency?
