] During the round of generic domain name auctions auda allowed registrants to take registrations from entities that do not exist at law.

] For example law.net.au has been registered by a non-legal entity.  I filed a complaint with auda on this a couple of weeks ago and as auda is the registrar of record nothing has happened.  Surely this domain along with other such names should be placed in the the domain market.

There is a legal entity called "Minter Ellison Services Pty Limited".
If that company's name is not correctly recorded in whois, that does
not mean the company does not exist.  (I'm not being flip, this is a
crucial point to understand.)

I believe that if you contact the registrar, they should fix this
defect by updating the registry details so that the registrant name
field accurately reflects the legal name of the registrant (changing
"Minter Ellison Services" to "Minter Ellison Services Pty Ltd" for
example, presumably after consulting the registrant).

A simple error in recording the exact legal name of the registrant
in the registry database is not what I would consider sufficient
reason for a domain license to be revoked.
