||I will give you my theory Richard why Eric grabbed 61 .info
Sunrise names - because he guessed that given the company he was keeping, he would
have to be quick if he was to have a chance at any of the best names, so falsified
TM registration details in order to take advantage of the "after the event- dumbass"
ICANN/Afilias Ltd. IP protection safeguards.|
The fact that so many registrars were
playing fast and loose with the ICANN/Afilias Ltd. rules which are supposed to govern
them, it makes me think that they had no fear of penalties from Afilias and ICANN
and didn't think anyone else would notice, didn't expect to be caught out, and didn't
expect to have to give up their names in the challenge process.
Are the flim flam
registrars just dumb, or as insiders, were they led to believe that they could do
what they liked - at the expense of the original Landrushers?
One way or another,
it looks to me that with seemingly rare exceptions, the DNS is being "managed" by
incompetants and operated by scam artists.
I don't see there being any chance of
integrity, accountability and transparency until those who brought us the fiascos
of the .info and .biz launches are chucked out of the business - that includes the
committee men and women with responsibility for the conduct of the ICANN mandarins
Stuart and Vint.
