||The point of Sunrise ...
"If they are not checking trademarks, then what was point of Sunrise? Trademarks
always could challenge after the registration of domain - so nothing has changed."|
my post again.
Why check every trademark claim of every Sunrise application submitted?
The vast majority would never be awarded, thus checking at that time would be a waste
of time and effort.
Check the Sunrise trademarks only at award time [but delay
registration until trademark verified]. Thus, only awarded domains' trademarks
would be checked, and revoked if invalid.
||Don't blame Afilias for not checking trademarks at submission time...
