[DNS] Australia's luckiest man?

To My fellow members of AuDA
 
"Without Prejudice"
 
In my personal "reserved" opinion and as a matter of personal observation. 
*	AuDA policy states" applicants must be registered to trade in Australia (eg.
company with ACN, business name owner with RBN, trade mark owner with TM number, sole
trader with ABN); and 
*	the geographic name must be an exact match, abbreviation or acronym of the
applicant's name, or the applicant must have a "close and substantial connection" with the
geographic name. 
Questionable actions are that one applicant (Jeff Marr) is the registrant of all seven
companies and he has in fact lodged several/numerous application under different
corporate/business entities and all leading back to Jeff Marr therefore the logic is that
everyone else lodged one and Mr. Marr lodged 7 therefore his chases are 25% or I on 4 /
total number applicants when everyone else is 1/ no applicants -So his chances are a
minimum 4 times greater that all other applicants.

ACN 114 755 118     AUSSIE DESTINATIONS (6) PTY LTD
ACN 114 755 136     AUSSIE DESTINATIONS (7) PTY LTD
 
It would, upon first review, appear that the 'infamous' Jeff Marr has once again usurped
the "integrity of the principal" of AuDA Policy regarding Geographic Domains. This appears
to be a plangent attempt and demonstration of his propensity and inclination to
"monopolise" the geographic domain name market. 
 
For those who would be interested I do hope that he does in fact use them for the purpose
they were intended- "to promote the geographic locations of Australian Business and
Services and not a contrivance to use sites such as Bingo Vic (near Omeo Gippsland
Victoria 3898) and Casino NSW (2470 in The Richmond Tweed Area) for his gaming and
gambling affiliations.
 
For those of us who have dealt with Mr Marr I say "Exercise caution in your business
affairs, for the world is full of trickery"

Umm, that's not the maths. Sure, if there were only 5 domains names
available and he was to get ALL of them your math is correct. The true
situation is that there were more available and he only nabbed a portion
(25%?) of them.
 
ie. If 100 domain names were available and I was one of 100 applications for
each then the probability that I would get *a* domain name is 1 (100 x 1/100
= 1), not 0.01 as per your calculations. The chance that I'd get the first 2
would be 0.01 x 0.01 = 0.0001 but the chance that I'd get *any* two would be
50%.
 
If Marr had 7 applications in each of 20 domains and there were 100
applications in total for each then he'd likely get 20 * (7/100) = 1.4
domain names. With fewer applications on some of the names he'd likely get
more.
