    You only had to take one hurdle

    ###Accordingly, the Panel finds and concludes that Respondent does not fall within STOP Policy 4(c)(ii). There were no demonstrable bona fide preparations to use the subject domain name for a bona fide offering of goods or services, “. . . Before any notice to Respondent of the dispute. . . .”###

    This is the "key sentence" in this decision.
    The Respondent only had to take "demonstrable bona fide preparations to use the subject domain name".
    THIS IS NOT THAT DIFFICULT....EVEN IF THE DOMAIN NAME IS LOCKED (LIKE IN STOP CASES). YOU ONLY HAVE TO BE A BIT CREATIVE.

    Yes you had to be fast with your demonstrable preparations to use (STOP Complaints were filed only two weeks after registration, if I remeber correctly).

    Yes, this policy is bad.
    Yes, innocent and/or uninformed domain holders were screwed by this policy.
    Informed domain name registrants were prepared before STOP Complaints have been allowed (approximately two weeks after registration).

    Simon,

    Look at the decision iagain. According to Perluss, no amount of "demonstrable preparation" would have been sufficient, because in order to proceed with the registration, the registrant had already received the IP claim. That was how .biz worked.


    Perluss, in his infinite wisdom, would have required people to have begun preparing to use domain names in advance of the .biz lottery - i.e. at a point in time when they did not know whether they would even *get* the domain name.


    Perluss is simply and clearly ignorant of the way the .biz registration process worked. The NAF doesn't require these panelists to know what they are talking about.
