.TV is for Tuvalu


I wonder what would have happened had the guy been using his country code, as in if here had been from Tuvalu.

I cannot help but wonder if the decision would have been different.



So apply all of the same scenarios to a .ca bit the guy actually lived in Canada, very unlikely this decision would have been reached.

Surnames are specifically listed in CDRP as a legitimate use - so it would not happen in .CA unless there was blatant infringement going on.

Obviously a rogue panelist trying to drum up some Hallmark billable hours by giving them a domain for free under very sketchy circumstances.

Or something even worse, as these "1 Panelist, No Respondent" scenarios could be almost cliche where suddenly an envelope appears on a desk (or an eTransfer on a phone) and no one knows whose it is.

Late-stage capitalism at work.
