auDA policy requires that registrars have direct communication with
registrants under certain circumstances -- offering hosting and additional
services is not one of them. If a Registrar wanted your business and was
prepared to accept your terms there is nothing stopping them from doing so.

Hi guys,
actually, you might have missed the point of all this...

there is not a problem in the registrant knowing which registrar the resller
is using to process the registration.  the problem arises when the registrar
knowingly directly targets the registrant to offer/sell services direct to
the registrant that would otherwise have been sold by the reseller.  that is
the crux of this issue.   it is about the channel - and the role of the
reseller.

it may be good for you to present this as a storm in a teacup,   but for
resellers it is  about getting assurances that such direct targetting will
not happen.

the registrars say that they can't give such assurances - as they say that
auDA policy requires that the registrars have direct communication with the
registrant.  I (and others) are saying that this communication could be done
by the reseller, possibly acting as an agent of the registrar.

cheers
Richard

Hi Karl

I don't think you're missing anything.  Many of the recent posters to this
list however seem to have difficulty understanding the situation that you
have outlined in this paragraph:

>As long as registrants are informed about the registrar that was used on
>their behalf (so that they could in theory act independently of the
reseller),
>there doesn't seem to me to be a problem. There is a direct association
between
>the registrar and the registrant, but the reseller manages that
association.

regards
jon
