You ignore some important points - your logic is flawed - lessons available :-)

You say, "They then sent all registrants an email explaining that there was an error and all the names were registered under Siegfried Lagenbach's (sp?) name and would be transferred to our real names after 180 days."

Should anybody this incompetent, be in this business?

You really and truthfully trust these Jokers? ;-)

You also say, "In the offbeat chance that that the client really did own the trademark(s) for the word(s) and you denied them service (let's face it, it's not exactly easy to check TMs online), you could be sued big-time for neglect to carry out your contractual duty."

Several counrtries have got TMs online - certainly those could have been checked - in less than a minute.

New Guy, Sunrise is bull* propaganda - ask them to deny this:

THOUSANDs of new 'open' TLDs will not solve any problem - even if every one has 'Sunrise Period'

It will not solve 'consumer confusion', 'trademark conflict' or stop anybody 'passing off'.

Also, as an example on Sunrise, thousands of trademarks using word 'Apple' have no guarantee of being able to use name.

Apple computers will still protect and make claim to every Apple.[anything] - even though they share word with 727 others in the USA alone (plus all those in 200+ countries).

But - WIPO could have set up a trademark verification system. Given the certainty that the system would be abused - should not have the authorities arranged to have the trademarks checked?
