Message:
 

 
    In connection with a pending legal challenge against the .biz
registry, the registrants of certain .biz domain name
applications have not yet been determined. Your
application(s) listed at the bottom of this email is among
that group.

Not all .biz applications are affected by this action, only
those that meet one or more of the following three criteria:

1. If more than one application was submitted for the
same name by different applicants;

2. If more than one application was submitted for the
same name by the same applicant; and/or

3. If only one application was submitted, but one or
more Intellectual Property Claims was filed for
the same name.

The affected domain names are not currently available for
registration and do not appear in the WHOIS database. It is
unclear how and when this situation will be resolved;
however, the .biz registry has informed us that it expects
that registrants will be selected for the types of names
listed in 2 and 3 within the next few weeks. We do not
know what will happen with regard to the types of names listed
in 1. We will do our best to keep you informed of the status
of your application(s) as information is made available to us
by the registry.

Once again, we appreciate your patience and thank you for
using Register.com, the First Step on the Web(TM).
