Hi everyone, |
Not sure if anybody noticed this, but for several minutes (perhaps
more), some of the most generic names (and obvious trademarks) became available for
registration again today. Yes, that's right, the previous owners in the whois were
simply obliviated into total non-existence.
This of course has resulted in many
of these domains being snapped up again by speedy speculators all around the world.
not sure what the pattern of names was (perhaps these were names that were going
to be challenged? But I also noticed that many names that were currently *being*
challanged at the WIPO also had brand new owners).
I mean, this is just stupidity
to its fullest extent. I hope for your sake Afilias, that you can roll-back your
WHOIS database, or else Neulevel's lawsuit will look like a walk in the park in comparison
to the trouble you're going to be in.
If this whole thing was proof of concept,
then the proof is that Afilias is a bunch of complete IT idiots. Grrrr !!!!!!
