.рф Scandal is only beginning it seems

This explains that around September the final rules will be done.

There are the appr 26k names which were auctioned off against the rules for the time.

The article does not specifically discuss the TM issue but i am guessing this also will be addressed.

Re: .рф Scandal is only beginning it seems

The below explains anyone who holds .рф domains that are infringing on a TM /Company name is in risk of ru center (Nic.ru) taking the names from them.

Компания RU-CENTER сегодня известила владельцев доменных имен зоны РФ об изменениях в в Регламент регистрации доменных имен зоны .РФ.

Теперь, в случае нарушения владельцем домена прав правообладателей товарных знаков или фирменных наименований, RU-CENTER сможет аннулировать право владения доменным именем, которое используется в этих целях. Кроме того, владельцы получают возможность отказаться от владения доменным именем.

Изменится также порядок выдачи информации Whois-серверами. Отныне персональные данные владельца, если это физическое лицо, будут скрыты от посторонних глаз.

Re: .рф Scandal is only beginning it seems

So a registrar can take a name from you on the basis of a complaint from a TM holder ? No udrp no hearing whatsoever ?

Any words on whether a bogus TM à la секс.рф will do the trick ?

Re: .рф Scandal is only beginning it seems

I can't tell as it's all press rumor he/she say imo, but in or around Sept we will find out and it won't at all be surprising to learn it is around the lines you described, i will be very surprised if they leave what Cetis did with секс.рф and others would not be in the Sept rules unless they will find another route to 'win' them back via court or the anti monopoly service which is also involved etc...

No fun building a home on a declared earth quake area...

The gov't took .ru names before with no notice or reasoning, only because they needed it so why stop now...

Re: .рф Scandal is only beginning it seems

on one hand i have to give to Russians to at least now (better late than never) addressing this mess, which given Russia's history is misappropriations, could have easily gone unsolved.

on the other hand, this just shows/proves one more time that while IDN concept is a winner (with several 100,000s of registrations in such a short period of time), anything that is connected and under gov-t control is a much riskier proposition that one would think.

Bottom line: should bode well for IDN.com

Re: .рф Scandal is only beginning it seems

The constant changing of rules is what is wrong with this whole thing. This is typical in Russia though. Laws keep changing, regulations change, and all this creates instability and potential loss of ownership rights. Nothing new really.
