This is supposed to be an OPEN gTLD.

Michael, you clearly are very angry.

I have not lost a cent - not being in Landrush or Sunrise.

However I believe the same as you - this was fraud by Afilias and conspiracy to commit fraud by ICANN.

This was for reasons outlined in my response to Parkars (arbitrator) thread:

You will see that Alex (LegalEagle), an experienced lawyer, believes that it would be difficult to prove.

That being said - I believe if you had 12 honest people in the Jury, the truth would hit them, smack in the face.

You have to tell them to keep foremost in their mind, these are experts that set this Sunrise system up.

Proof of concept was just a smokescreen of SPIN.

Even Alex admits, "Yes, Sunrise was Bull* propoganda."

Afilias and ICANN do not admit to gross incompetence - having no checks at all.

This is even though they now have to check many of these trademarks - and still many false ones will go through.

There is absolutely no doubt in my mind - they are both corrupt.
