    IMHO, was it known that LR1 applications were being accepted simultaneously with sunrise applications and that a sunrise registration, eligible or not, would preempt a LR1 application thereby causing a possible loss to the landrusher? The TM preference system as implimented seems to penalize landrushers. It doesn't seem to matter if the sunrise registration was "legit" or inappropriate, landrushers likely lost either way. There could have been hundreds of LR1 preregistrations for a hot domain name and all those preapplications and associated fees were lost if subsequently a TM holder from Algeria or somewhere came around and registered during sunrise. See the real issue here? Timing. LR1 applications ought not to have been taken until after the sunrise TM preference phase was completed to save effort and expense. Also, wasn't there in some instances another preregistration fee to get into LR2? Where did all the LR1 and LR2 preregistration fees go? Could that have been avoided? It ought to have been known that sunrise registrations preempted landrush applications and that losses were possible. The existence of the challenge process seems to indicate an awareness of at least part of the concern that inappropriate sunrise registrations might occur. But was this concern mainly out of preference for TM holders or landrushers? Where was the concern for landrushers? There were also apparently tens of thousands of reportedly inappropriate sunrise registrations many of which were voided. What happened to those registration fees, some being for 5 year terms? Then if the challenged name was reregistered in LR2 another registration fee was probably paid? Reselling the same product twice for additional fees doesn't play well in Pretoria.

    It plays well in Peoria though, some of these names have changed hands four or more times with the registrars and sometimes WIPO making money every time. It's the speculators who are getting fleeced, no-one will stand up for them, they're sitting ducks. -g
