have a concern about 3.2.1 below.
this mean we are not allowing the Registrant to exercise their rights to
recover the domain during the RGP ? I would think that the
Complaintant should only be able to recover the domain from RGP near the END
of the RGP (ie: after the rights of the Registrant have basically
expired). Alternately, if the Complaintant should exercise the recovery
from RGP, and subsequent to that the Registrant wants to recover it, I believe
the domain should NOT be placed on Hold automatically, should be placed in the
Registrants name again, and should be in the same status and information
that it was when it was deleted.
There are Registrars, such as ourselves, that are
now deleting names a day after expiry. I would hate to see a
complaintant game the system by applying for a recovery on the first
day, and basically taking away the rights of the Registrant to continue
to use the domain during the complaint period.
I would still prefer this paragraph be
deleted. However, it would also work if it were revised as follows, or
"A registrar must, at a minimum, make the same effort
to inform a registrant of any material changes to the deletion policy during
the period of the domain name licence as it would to inform a registrant of
other material changes to the domain name licence."
The current Redemption Grace Period policy
"Registrars may only RESTORE Registered Names in
order to correct unintentional deletions caused by registrant, registrar, or
registry mistake (or as required by operation of the UDRP or other
applicable dispute resolution policy in order to implement a court, arbitral
tribunal or Administrative Panel decision)..."
It may be a minor point but we should probably
recognize the above to illustrate that this recommendation is in line with
"In the event that a domain the subject of a UDRP
dispute is deleted, a complainant in the UDRP dispute will have the option
to restore the name, as provided for in current Redemption Grace Period
policy, under the same commercial terms as the registrant. If the
complainant restores the name, the name will be placed in Registrar HOLD and
Registrar LOCK status, The WHOIS contact information for the registrant will
be removed, and the WHOIS entry will indicate that the name is subject to
dispute. If the complaint is terminated or the UDRP dispute
finds against the complainant, the name will be deleted within 45 days."
