(see earlier post, below) It appears Afilias is not enforcing the Sunrise challenge provision which requires a successful challenger to register under Sunrise rules (with a trademark). At least one is not entering any trademark details for his challenge spoils.

It isn't so bad that a challenger gets the domain that was registered fradulently in the first place, but they are violating the rules, just like the original registrant did.  What's worse, after the challenge and fraudulent re-registration, there are no longer any trademark details visible in the whois, so I'm not sure the name can be challenged a second time, or if it will be included in the Afilias challenge of obvious frauds.

This "domain laundering" is just the latest chapter in the .info debacle.
