    Maybe some of you have been following this on dotau.org (you should sign up for the emails if you are interested)

    It appears that auDA have acreditted a new registrar - an overseas company called Safenames Ltd despite the fact that officially new accreditation are closed.

    http://www.auda.org.au/registrars/accreditation/

    At first Disspain said that they have been provisionally accredited before the cut-off date so have only just now become fully accredited.

    However he has not responded to suggestions that they have not been operating as a reseller for at least 6 months prior to this which is a requirement.

    The silence is deafening...

    Yeh, this is a tough one for AUDA. They will probably not respond as the more they say, the weaker is their position.

    This is very important, I think, given all the legal cases that AUDA has been involved in.

    I wouldn't be surprised if these incidents come up in the court room in order to dis-credit the organisation. I think many of these issues will be resolved after the Bottle domains hearing.
