Unless Of Course The Domain Name Company Was Prepared To Pay Interest On the Loan From The Registrant


This discussion of how the Dot Pro registry has pushed back its go-live date illustrates that registries should perhaps not be allowed to collect fees for sunrise registrations before the registry goes live.

In a somewhat analogous situation, NSI collected (to the best of my knowledge) substantial fees for “internationalized” domain names in October of 2000.  It is my understanding that those domain names did not actually resolve until 2003.
