||alternatives to Landrush II will be gross CORRUPTION
I note in the article to which DomeBase refers, LaPlante mentions a "second land
grab" without clarification or confirmation that it will be only for those of us
who bought Landrush preregistrations for the disputed names. Quote below:|
someone's application does go to WIPO, they will have 20 days to
reply with evidence
of trademark or the domain will be put into a pot
for a second "land grab" in
February/March. The names will be
published on the Afilias site, Mr La Plante
Everyone should remember that Afilias/Afilias
approved registrars sold Landrush preregistrations for names (heaven knows how many
times) and then sold preregistrations for the same names which Afilias subsequently
Sunrise registered without checking whether the applications were fraudulent.
a competent, responsible company have done this?
If it is now Afilias's plan to
make the 10,000 plus fraudulently registered names available in a manner different
to a Landrush II for only those still holding Landrush I preregistrations, then Afilias
will stand condemned forever for its greed.
Would an ethical and accountable company
do this this?
It is a disgrace that Afilias has yet to make an official announcement
on this matter.
The registry "where the world once went for information" is the
world's worst communicator.
If we have anything other than a Landrush II for Landrush
I preregistration holders - then the corrupt culture which seems to pervade ICANN
and Afilias will be confirmed.
