> Therefore perhaps Hawaii TM holders should be informed about this theft. Leopold would become a victim of the bullshit culture she writhes in. The global legal implications of a TM holder taking the name would be far less that if a local authority did since it's already the norm with wipo, so I don't think it would increase the risk to the internet community (when you consider that it's a bogus sunrise and not a generic owned legitimately).

Agree with you. This is the same conclussion that I came - about Afilias 'stealing' search.info from all those 'search' trademark holders.

> And as you say, if a TM holder did challenge her for it, ICANN may confiscate it off them later anyway.

I was more concerned about the extension of UDRP - a corrupt law if ever there was one.
