Subject: 488 out of 5000+Plankenstein+foreign generics+hidden fakes


So the score to date is: 488 names have been challenged.

This leaves 4981 fakes of Plankenstein's which Afilias MUST challenge
This leaves 4500 other fakes as listed on Internet Challenge
This leaves 2000 foreign generics largely unreported?
This leaves 3000 "hidden" fakes - the ones that "LOOK" real

I figure that makes nearly 500 out 15000 challenged.

By my math that means around 3% of fake names have been challenged.

Afilias have given NO indication of what they're going to do with the other 14,500. They say they'll go for the ones that are visibly ineligible. But does that mean that the majority of fraudsters know they're going to get away with it?

Common sense says that EVERY Sunrise applicant should be asked to present Trademark certificates/documentation for experts to examine. No certificates then no domain.

There's time to do that, or they could simply extend the lock-in period.

What do people think?
