  1. thanks
    Thanks for posting this. For some reason, the announcement of these new rules does not appear on CIRA’s blog, on its ‘News Announcements’ page, on its ‘Press Releases’ page or was sent by email to dot-CA domain name owners.

  2. As one who was consulted on this with a 30-minute survey….
    … I too never was notified by email or otherwise of a decision or these changes.

    I also noticed my CIRA login is no longer functional.

    Perhaps they threw me out of the membership and never notified me?

    I wonder what else they are hiding…
    Did they also agree to hand over domains to copyright holders now, as well as trademark holders?

  5. Frustrated with CIRA
    I just lost a domain name to a foreign company with Canadian presence. The generic name domain I lost was registered prior to the existence of this company. The Complainant lied but was represented by a law firm. Cira Dispute Resolution Panel was totally biased with any grounds. I did not know that CIRA can take any inactive domains as a reason to favor the Complainant. The Bad Faith clause was applied against me when really Complainant did everything in bad faith. It seems CIRA’s panel selection is shoddy and there is no review done after their decision. In my case; I got totally ripped off and have to just take this decision as I do not have extra funds to fight this injustice. In other words CIRA’s policies suck big time..mt two cents worth.
