Patrick & other auDA members,

The following is an extract from an email I understand is circulating
amongst a few that I feel all should see.

I am not a legal eagle and haven't read the auDA charter, but I sure would
love to know the answers.

I am aware of a number of major corporates who have indicated in the past
that they would seek redress if prior rejection for preferred domain name
registration were subsequently reversed and issued to another.

If potential legal battles are looming, then auDa, the Panel and Members
need to have a clear 'handle' on the outcomes.
