    US : quelque chose de pourri au royaume du drop aka "SnapNames rebates"

    Avis Oversee -

    Petite réaction d'Oversee que j'avais oublié de refléter, répondant à quelques questions d'alors :

    Update to Rebate Offer Acceptance Agreement

    On November 6, 2009, via Rust Consulting, we provided a calculation of the impact of the inappropriate bidding activity on your account and a Rebate Offer Acceptance Agreement for you to sign and return at your discretion.

    Several SnapNames customers expressed concerns about the agreement’s language. After considering these comments, we concluded that a section of the original agreement, addressing the scope of release of potential claims, could be interpreted as too broad and not what the company intended, and therefore should be clarified.

    Accordingly, a revised copy (available for download here) states precisely that the agreement addresses only the SnapNames auctions in which there was bidding activity from the user name “halvarez.”

    Customers who have already communicated their acceptance of the rebate do not need to take further action at this point—your rebate is already being processed for payment. However, if you prefer the revised language, you can print, sign and return the updated document. In that event, we will destroy the original acceptance agreement.

    Should you have questions regarding the revised agreement, please contact Rust Communications at (888) 413-5338, or

    Calculation of rebate amounts

    As discussed in the November 6 communication from Rust Consulting, to determine the rebate offer amount, SnapNames hired an independent, third-party forensic accounting firm to perform a review of these auctions and to calculate the rebate.

    The firm reviewed data regarding all of the bidders in an affected auction, including the bids each bidder placed in the auction and the maximum bids the bidders indicated they were willing to place in the auction. From this data, the firm determined what the winning bid would have been had halvarez never placed a bid in the auction. This amount was then subtracted from the actual price paid for the domain name to determine the amount of the rebate for that auction.

    Upon further review of this data, SnapNames has learned that for a small number of accounts, calculations failed to account for changes in our bidding system over time. In those cases, there will be a resulting upward adjustment of between $1 and $5 per auction. If you were affected, you do not need to take any action—you automatically will be paid the higher amount. If your payment has already been processed, you will be issued an additional check for the difference (or credit will be added to your SnapNames account, if you elected that option).

    Additional options for sending your rebate acceptance

    As detailed previously, if you elect to accept the rebate offer, you can execute and return the Rebate Offer Acceptance Agreement to:

    SnapNames Rebate Administrator
    P.O. Box 98
    Minneapolis, MN 55440-0098

    (If you so elect, you may ask Rust Consulting to print and mail you a copy of the forms with a self-addressed stamped envelope. Rust Consulting can be reached by telephone at (888) 413-5338 or by e-mail at

    We have made additional options available for returning your agreement. If you prefer, you may:

    • Fax your executed offer to (503) 200-1232
    • E-mail a scanned copy of the executed offer to

    Again, thank you for your business, and your ongoing trust in SnapNames.

    La menace pour les tlds historiques du pricing "à la .tv" prend forme...

    Plus que quelques heures pour soumettre vos commentaires à l'Icann concernant la possibilité de pricer .com, .net et .org à la manière du .tv, c'est à dire de subordonner le droit d'utilisation de votre nom de domaine au paiement d'une redevance annuelle variable, soumise au bon vouloir de l'Icann et ses affiliés.

    Today is the last day to submit comments on the 2nd guidebook for new gTLDs. If you don't have time to submit original thoughts, you can endorse other people's comments, see:

    for the current list of comments. See the page at:

    for the relevant documents and comment email addresses. Most of the comments are being submitted to the "Full Guidebook" section via the email address Like all ICANN comment submissions, you will be sent back a confirmation email, and need to click the link in that email and submit "Yes" as your answer for verification, as an anti-spam measure.
