It has been a few days since I said that - so about time I repeat the message ;-)

Sunrise is using spin to tell a lie and a money making con.

Why is nobody reporting on this?

All we get is propaganda from media - of 'proof of concept' - like 250 ccTLDs has taught them nothing.

I will keep on saying - until ICANN, US DoC or UN WIPO answer (else show themselves to be corrupt).

The authorities will not deny the truth:

THOUSANDs of new open TLDs will not solve any problem - even if every one has 'Sunrise Period'

It will not solve 'consumer confusion', 'trademark conflict' or stop anybody 'passing off'.

Also, as an example on Sunrise, thousands of trademarks using word 'Apple' have no guarantee of being able to use name.

Apple computers will still protect and make claim to every Apple.[anything] - even though they share word with 727 others in the USA alone (plus all those in 200+ countries).
