Gamed

DNW reports that some new TLD got gamed

OK, now on to a potentially problematic issue.

Remember how when .eu, .info, and other domains came out, domainers “gamed” the system by applying for joke trademarks and using this to get the domain names in sunrise?

Well, the new Trademark Clearinghouse is full of marks of questionable quality. Although each registry may interpret the contract differently, new TLD registries are basically obligated to give a sunrise registration to someone with a registration in the Trademark Clearinghouse.

Donuts had to cough up domains like luxury.guru, cloud.guru, bet.guru, and finance.holdings at sunrise prices of under $200.

All of the claimed trademarks were from Switzerland. And do you know who owns these trademarks and got the above mentioned domains through sunrise? Two other new TLD applicants.

Specifically, the first two went to people connected with the .luxury bid. The latter two went to applicant What Box? Holdings, which I’ve discovered also has a Trademark Clearinghouse record for “credit.”

I think Uniregistry was smart to add a provision to its contracts that make it very difficult for sunrise registrants to ever transfer their domains to someone else. Others should follow.

Re: Gamed

Yes, Sunrise issues should really be returned to the registry rather than be eligilbe for transfer. Coca Cola would not care.

As in "Alpha is widely praised as a guru in auto-erotic asphyxia circles".
