I thought you couldn't transfer Sunrise names for 180 days?

Why should a challenge of a false (?) Trademark be terminated just because the ownership is transferred to a so-called third party, in breach of the 180 day embargo on transfers?

I don't get the logic.

The right to challenge this name remains the same whoever owns it; it's just as possible that the TM details are fake; and surely it is not within a court's jurisdiction to overturn Afilias's contractual rules regarding the administration of the .info roll-out.

I really don't see WIPO should be told by Michael Palage to terminate what looks like a perfectly good challenge, and I really don't see why one person gets to transfer his high-value domain name, in breach of the 180-day rule, just because he is taken to court by himself, or an associate in the same office suite as himself, or whatever the case may be here.

What jurisdiction does the Maricopa Court of Arizona have over the running of a Registry based elsewhere?
