    New gTLDs Afilias OK with sunrise sex.info registration
    posted by tbyfield on Thursday May 09 2002, @03:53AM

    Anonymous writes "Afilias, which provided an in-house challenge to all dot info sunrise applications not otherwise challenged, let sex.info stand."



    The registered owner of sex.info has a trademark on a logo treatment of the word SEX, but apparently Afilias thinks this includes the word itself, which is a common noun beloved by many.

    It would seem that this is just another example of the capricious nature of these challenges, the process for which will hopefully be itself challenged in court someday.

    Could I have some clarification of this? First, is Afilias only using its in-house challenge on those sunrise names not otherwise challenged? If so, then all those individuals who essentially challenged themselves (there are a few of them who didn't even make it non-obvious) are safe, and that includes many of the most 'desirable' names (not that I put much credence in that hype).

    Second, is there a list of those names which Afilias is challenging in-house, and following from that, is there a list of the decisions reached? The last time I checked the WIPO site I couldn't find such, unless they are mixed in with the listings of other challenges/decisions, in which case how does one go about telling them apart? TIA. -g

    The registrant played within the rules and shouldn't be blamed. The rules, however, were really stupid.
