||Vera, I can't see how we can have both. I think the
original Landrushers should get what we paid for - the chance to win the names that
Afilias took from the prize pool when they processed fraudulent Sunrise applications.|
only equitable solution is to run a Landrush 2 with only those preregistrations in
place at the time that Landrush 1 began.
There should be no resale of the fraudulently
registered names so there is no expansion of the number of preregistrants.
an equitable solution is not possible, the next best thing is a refund of the Landrush
preregistration fees for names that were removed from the lottery due to the lame
Afilias and ICANN approved "after the event" IP protection and anti-cybersquatting
If the equitable solution or the refund are not achieved and Afilias and
ICANN take the .info launch travesty into another chapter with a resale of the original
Landrush names, then a Congressional Inquiry is called for and the principals of
Afilias and ICANN should face the courts.
I feel that should Afilias announce
that successfully challenged Sunrise names are to be resold to the public, we have
further confirmation of my opinion that a culture of corruption has developed and
goes unchecked under the current ICANN administration.
I wish you a happy and
safe Christmas and great times in the new year with your new .info domains.
