of Practice?


Here's the Internet Registry Pty Ltd notice:

http://www.whatsinaname.com.au/renewals/wIR02b.jpg


This statement is incorrect: "Secure your domain name with Internet
Registry in the new system before 31st July, any existing registration
period for your domain will be added to your two year registration!"

Domain Name Licences are for 2 years Only
http://www.auda.org.au/about/news/2001040201.html


The notice may be in breach of the auDA Code of Practice
(http://www.auda.org.au/docs/auda-2002-13.txt), specifically 5.1, 5.2,
5.5 (b),(d)&(f).

"5. CUSTOMER CONTACT

5.1	A registrar must not send a renewal notice for a specific domain
name licence to a registrant, 
or any other communication that might reasonably be construed by the
registrant to be a renewal notice, 
unless the registrar is the registrar of record for that domain name
licence in the registry database.

5.2	A reseller must not send a renewal notice for a specific domain
name licence to a registrant, or 
any other communication that might reasonably be construed by the
registrant to be a renewal notice, 
unless the reseller has been previously appointed by the registrant to
be their agent.

[snip-snip]

5.5	Domain name suppliers may make a service offering to a
registrant (other than as described in 
paragraphs 5.1 and 5.2), provided that:

[snip-snip]

b) there is no mention of a specific domain name or related information
such as an expiry date;

[snip-snip]

d) it is clearly explained that acceptance of the offer may require the
registrant to either transfer to 
another reseller of the current registrar of record, or transfer to a
new domain name licence with a different 
registrar of record;

[snip-snip]

f) the contact information for the registrant was not obtained from the
WHOIS service operated by the registry, 
or from auDA's centralised WHOIS service."


From MelbourneIT's Consumer Warning: "Internet Registry Pty Ltd is not
an auDA licensed registrar, nor is it an appointed reseller of Melbourne
IT Ltd.", so which Registrar has this company on their books?
