Sunrise B is the time when trademark owners can apply to opt-out of .XXX. This period will run for 52 days starting September 7, 2011. Trademark and domain holders wishing to block their trademarks from .XXX during Sunrise B may submit an application through one of our accredited registrars located here.
Sunrise B is aimed at applicants from outside of the adult Sponsored Community. These applicants are owners of a qualifying trademark registration, who seek to reserve names in order to ensure that those names are not registered as domain names by others in .XXX. At the close of the Sunrise Period, if no conflicting application by a Sunrise A applicant has been made, these names will be reserved from registration (blocked).
Qualification, Eligibility and Verification For Sunrise
These will be detailed in the Comprehensive Launch Policies.
Single Sunrise B Only
A successful application to block a domain name by a single, qualified applicant under Sunrise B, and not subject to a competing application from an adult Sponsored Community applicant under Sunrise A, will be designated “reserved–trademark” or similar. This domain name will be removed from the pool of domain names available for registration in future phases of the registry operation and the WHOIS information will simply list standard registry information. The corresponding domain name will resolve to a standard informational page indicating the status of the domain name as not available for registration or similar. Allowing the domain name to resolve is designed to prevent “synthetic DNS” or non-DNS resolution systems from hi-jacking queries to these domain names.
Competing Applications and IP Claims
Multiple Sunrise B Applications
In the event that there is more than one qualified applicant under Sunrise B, the domain name will be reserved in exactly the same way as if there were only a single applicant and there will be no refund or apportionment of fees among such applicants.
Competing Sunrise A and Sunrise B Applications
If both a Sunrise A and a Sunrise B applicant want the same domain name, priority will be given to the Sunrise A applicant to register the domain name. At the close of the Sunrise period, if more than one Sunrise application is made for a domain name, all Sunrise applicants for that domain name will be notified of the claims made by the other Sunrise applicants for that name. In the event any Sunrise A applicant proceeds with a registration, the applicant will be deemed on notice of the intellectual property claims submitted by the other Sunrise applicant(s) and may not claim lack of notice with regard to such applicant(s) in any subsequent dispute proceeding. All Sunrise application fees are non-refundable.
