Subject: Will YESNIC be banned, if WIPO reject their 261 Sunrise "Trademarks"?

Message:
 

 
Yesnic, magically, managed to find Trademarks for 261 of the key generic domains which were registered for them by Afilias at Sunrise.

Yesnic are recommended and endorsed by Afilias.

I call on Yesnic to immediately confirm that they submitted genuine Trademark details for each of these names.

If they fail to do so, they should be banned (not just from .info but from any kind of ICANN accreditation).

If they claim their innocence, and WIPO shows they provided fake info, then they should be banned.

261 key generic names - held for one of Afilias's own buddies - and kept from the Internet community.

I thought that the job of Afilias as a Registry was that they were supposed to make domain names available for the public, not register them for their friends?

Will Yesnic please respond? And if Afilias takes no action (and to date, Yesnic are still trading and endorsed) will they accept charges of complicity in what might turn out to be fraud?

Why should honest customers risk being duped, by a Registrar that Afilias STILL endorses, if it is shown that Yesnic lied and cheated, and shown that Afilias presided over it all?
