What is the situation with Trademark holders etc over .biz?

If you pre-register with DomainBank, do you just end up being challenged by a TM holder and lose the $100 you have to pay for the name if you get it?

I haven't been following .biz so I haven't a clue where it's all at.

When do these names get allocated?

Who then has the right to challenge them?

Suppose DomainBank secure three names I've pregistered... I have to pay them $300 for that... is it likely I'd then be challenged by a TM holder, so I would just have paid DomainBank $300 for what ends up nothing?

I'd be grateful if someone could clarify these questions for me, before I get tempted to commit money all over again. I lost enough in the .info "abomination"!
