Subject: What is Afilias going to do about people changing Sunrise WHOIS ownership etc?

Message:
 

 
scores.info and football.info are two examples of names bought at Sunrise (with fake Trademark details) which have been "unlocked" and sold/had registrant owner changed. They are both listed as "ACTIVE" as is ford.info

Surely Afilias have a duty to intervene immediately, delete the names, and explain to the internet public how their system can allow a Sunrise fraud to sell on / alter owner details names to other people when these names should be "LOCKED" for 180 days pending challenge.

In the case of these three names, Leo Hillock was the original registrant and you can also recognise this (even if you don't have the original Sunrise database as I do) by comparing the identical trademark number used (260701) which is still being used in other names he retains like storm.info

I'd be grateful if Afilias and ICANN could enlighten us. These names, along with Govinda Leopold's false-trademark names, the Lorenz "ZERO data" names, and Plankensteins myriads, not to mention various registrars and all the laughable entries numbered from "1" to "0" to "None" to "1234567" to "11111111111" etc SHOULD ALL BE DELETED NOW.

As of this moment in time - and despite countless requests to return the name - Afilias Board member Govinda Leopold is a cybersquatter. Now Afilias seem to be losing fake names through "gaps" in their system, as WHOIS details are altered and ownership is transferred.

SURELY the time has come for ICANN to intervene!
