for trademark and service mark owners to qualify to receive a registration during
the Sunrise Period (a "Sunrise Registration"), the following information must be
provided to Registry Operator: (i) the ASCII characters name of the trademark or
service mark; (ii) the date the registration issued; (iii) the country of registration;
and (iv) the registration number."
This forum pointed up these clauses as early
as July 15th 2001, and yet DomainBank (the company of Afilias CEO Hal Lubsen) ignored
these rules and abused the Afilias system, when it charged William Lorenz $15000
to support 93 domain names with "NONE" filled in the plave of each of these four
mandatory data fields.
Despite repeated requests for an explanation or justification
for the Afilias CEO allowing his own company to abuse Afilias's Sunrise rules, no
reply has ever been made.
Lubsen's company has kept the money, and rode roughshod
over ICANN's contract without any sanction.
Rules are put in place to protect the
consumer, but when they are ICANN rules or Afilias rules, they don't seem to count,
especially if insiders benefit financially in the process.
But Landrush customers
lost in the region of $3,000,000 because of the Sunrise frauds.
Tell me, Stuart
Lynn: why does that make this forum "a joke" as you allege?
Is it this forum which
should be removed, or you and your colleagues who presided over these disgraceful
examples of corruption?
