||ICANN's Accreditation Agreement with Registrars - and consumer protection
ICANN's Registrar Accreditation Agreement states clear "prohibitions on warehousing
of or speculation in domain names by registrars".|
It goes on to say that
"This Agreement may be terminated before its expiration by ICANN in any of the following
"Registrar fails to cure any breach
of this Agreement within fifteen working days after ICANN gives Registrar notice
of the breach."

QUESTION to ICANN:
Does ICANN take
the view that Registrars like Yesnic have been found guilty (eg by successful challenges
through WIPO) of "warehousing or speculation in domain names"?
(I refer to the
14 successful challenges against Yesnic in the .info Sunrise Challenge process, and
over 200 names obtained by Yesnic in the .info Sunrise.)
Has ICANN "given notice"
to Yesnic or other Registrars "of the breach" of the Agreement?
Will ICANN consider
termination of the Accreditation agreement?
The Internet public and community must
express serious concern about the failure of ICANN to protect consumer interests,
if they do not insist upon the proper adherence to the Accreditation agreement by
Registrars. By continuing to offer accreditation, and the right to trade under the
ICANN "seal of approval" ICANN is responsible to consumers.
So I repeat: was Yesnic
or any other Registrar guilty of "warehousing of or speculation in domain names"?
