The whole supposed registrar insider dealing that is allegedly going on with all
the registries (if the rants of this board are anything to be believed) epitomises
the very essense of capitalism, actually. |
Why were the new extensions developed
anyway? To make more money.
Why were registrars given free license to take in
as many registrations as possible and charge whatever they wanted? To make more money.
Why is WIPO charging exorbitant fees to challenge TMs? To make more money.
will 10,000 more names be challenged come 2002? To make more money.
Why were Sunrise
'fraudsters' allowed to register TMs that obviously weren't theirs? Why is Afilias
itself supposedly offering net.info for sale at $99K ? I really could go on and on
I liken this whole supposed Trademark "Fraud" fiasco to leaving a bank vault
open in a busy street, and then planting cops around the corner. Afilias made it
so easy for this to happen but of course, they were always in cohoots with WIPO so
it's a win-win for itself and its pals in Switzerland.
And on the subject of "FRAUD"
as you call it, is legally only "FRAUD" when you are using a document for legal or
financial statement/asserting purposes, so perhaps we should just call them Sunrise
But you know what? If it wasn't for 'cybersquatters' at all, we wouldn't
be having the need for more extensions. Squatters make the supply of this silly artificial
resource exceed supply, thus making the names themselves more valuable.
truly was a fascist and/or communist system (not dissimilar to the huge restrictions
in Australia for instance), then we wouldn't even be here and you wouldn't be reading
this exceptionally long winded piece of shite. Yes, the almighty dolero amigos -
it's what capitalism and domain names are all about.
