APPEAL FOR HELP AND THE INTERVENTION OF AN HONORABLE MAN

Dear Sir,

I am writing to complain because a Board Member of Afilias has obtained a .info domain name in the Sunrise phase (introduced to PROTECT Trademarks) by submitting a clearly FAKE Trademark number (44455555) for HAWAII.info. The Board Member, Govinda Leopold, of cc.hawaii.net / !stDomainNet - has accepted that the application was corrupt, and yet the name has not been deleted, and therefore the rest of the Internet Community and the State of Hawaii have been deprived of the right to register the name.

As a Board Member of Afilias, I believe that Ms.Leopold is abusing her own systems and this is clearly unacceptable. Afilias have been asked to delete this name but have done nothing.

Why hasn't HAWAII.info been deleted and returned to the Internet community for someone HONEST to register?
Why is Afilias Board member Govinda Leopold holding onto it, when it was registered with a fraudulent trademark number?

What possible defence can Afilias put up?

I am appealing to you for help in this matter.

Yours sincerely

Rachel MacGregor
