The Altavista generated translation is quite odd, as usual, but the article itself is quite informative and useful, thank you very much for having posted it!
Basically, the president of the Tiscover corporation acknowledges that he had not TM, but then goes on explaining that they just took advantage of the lack of care taken by Afilias, with no control of obviously invalid TM...
He is right in his criticism of Afilias (and he should have added registrars, who bear at leats as much responsability - registrars should not have accepted to submit obviously invalid TMs during the Sunrise period, especially those registrars asking for advance money), but this doesn't mean that Tiscover-"Plankenstein" acted honestly. I hope that Afilias will intervene against this massive fraud...
