    From Neulevel's own policy regarding Registration Restrictions on .biz domains:

    Registering a domain name solely for the purposes of (1) selling, trading or leasing the domain name for compensation, or (2) the unsolicited offering to sell, trade or lease the domain name for compensation shall not constitute a "bona fide business or commercial use" of that domain name.

    It will be a violation of the Restrictions for an Applicant to:


    use the registered domain name in a manner inconsistent with the definition of “business or commercial use” contained herein.

    Violations of the Restrictions may be grounds for cancellation of a registered .BIZ domain name, pursuant to the enforcement mechanism discussed below.

    I think this is pretty clear. Directi have admitted that this is precisly what they are doing.

    Which creates no direct obligation on Neulevel to act as enforcement is via the RDRP. Perhaps of more relevance here especially as it creates a direct and unequivocal obligation on Neulevel to act is the following clause from the ".BIZ Registration Restrictions" agreement:

    {begin quote}

    Registration Requirements

    Before the Registry Operator will accept applications for registration, all domain name applicants in the .BIZ TLD (“Applicants”) must:

    Enter into an electronic or paper registration agreement with an ICANN-Accredited Registrar (“Registrar”), in accordance with the ICANN Registrar Accreditation Agreement (“Accreditation Agreement”). Such electronic or paper registration agreement shall include the following certifications:

    The data provided in the domain name registration application is true, correct, up to date and complete; and

    The registrant will keep the information provided above up to date.

    As part of a domain name registration application, the Applicant must certify that to the best of its knowledge:

    The registered domain name will be used in a manner consistent with the Restrictions above;

    The domain name registrant has the authority to enter into the registration agreement; and

    The registered domain name is reasonably related to the registrant's business or intended commercial purpose at the time of registration.

    Failure to comply with the above will result in failure of the Registry Operator to process an Applicant’s domain name application.

    {end quote}
