1. CIRA themselves acknowledges the aftermarket, they occasional post aftermarket sales data on their website.
2. CIRA profits from the aftermarket. The entire purpose of TBR is for CIRA and their registrars to profit from domain resales at aftermarket (above retail) type pricing. CIRA profits by charging registrars fees for participating in TBR.
3. CIRA has bought domains they wanted for their own use in the aftermarket themselves.
Exactly! So to call 10K USD excessive in a dispute is mind boggling. I guess the TBR prices are excessive and something should be done about it.
“It can be inferred from the fact that the domain name was advertised for sale at USD$10,000 that it was registered with the intention of selling it to the Complainant, which is defined in the Policy as bad faith. Moreover, the price at which the domain name was offered was excessive and far in excess of the Registrant’s actual registration costs.”
