Subject: Why Afilias can't criticise Lars Hindsley

Message:
 

 
The reason Afilias can't criticise Lars Hindsley for abusing their Sunrise system, is that the company of their own CEO - Hal Lubsen - was at it too : charging $15000 in one instance to submit 93 cases of...

Trademark name: NONE
Trademark country: NONE
Trademark date: NONE
Trademark number: NONE

So if the CEO of Afilias was prepared to preside over the abuse of his own system, breaking the specific rules and contract set out by ICANN, how can Afilias complain about Lars Hindsley and Spy Productions.

And let's face it, Afilias Director Govinda Leopold was caught out with her company submitting fake data for Hawaii.info, Maui.info and Govinda.info

I mean, who the hell is protecting the consumer in all this? ICANN are craven in their silence and their negligent desertion of consumers' interests.

Lars Hindsley put in the TM numbers for his customers. They were made up numbers. But Afilias executives and directors were equally in conflict with their own rules.

The question is: who is policing this shambles? Who is protecting the consumers?
