Subject: Vienna.info successfully challenged, but is the new owner legitimate?

Message:
 

 
I think you will find that the registrant details have been changed.
This seems to happen when there's been a successful WIPO challenge and the name has been transferred to s different owner.

But the false Trademark details of the previous owner seem to be kept on (which I can't understand).

The same thing happened with some other names like football.info and scores.info

I can't understand why the Trademark details aren't updated, and only the successful challenger's name is added. This makes it difficult to decide whether to challenge the successful challenger. Does he/she have proper Trademark to take the name? Well who knows, if the previous person's trademark details are the only ones you can see on the WHOIS.

Can anyone explain? Why can't the Trademark data be updated as well as the Registrant Name?
