    Eurid were warned in advance

    User #3269 Info | http://www.atlarge.org/
    I flagged up this problem at the ICANN meeting back in 2004 (see the last 3 lines of my article and the main article itself here: http://www.icann.org/meetings/capetown/icann-domai nnames-workshop-doc1-01dec04.htm ).

    I also received this assurance from Eurid in July 2005:

    "The accredited register must forward to EURid only those applications he received after accreditation, and he must do so on a first-come-first-served basis. Auctioning with the domain name is definitely not allowed. Not complying with the regulation and as well as the agreement is a breach of contract.

    On a similar note, we don't allow reselling.

    The end consumer should at at any time know who is responsible for what and who would be the accredited registrar. This should be made clear at all times and should be explicitly mentioned in the agreement with the end consumer."

    If any of these shell registrars were set up for Pool or eNom or similar 'parent' company and accredited at the last moment, it is worth noting that the majority of applications would have been received *before* accreditation (because Pool for example was inviting applications months ago).

    I also note that "auctioning is not allowed" and I note that Pool is using an "auction" model. What is Eurid's position on this?

    Finally, I don't see how the end consumer can know in advance which "shell registrar" will be their "registrar" if they apply through a 'parent' registrar. Therefore, Eurid's statement that the end consumer should know who the registrar is seems problematical.
