    I think in any case, .uk DRS's should take into account the fact that they had given 5 years to the owner of the .CO.UK to claim the .uk as their own. So, what would have happened if they had lodged a DRS for the .uk during the 5 year period??? Considering they didn't own the .CO.UK themselves? Lol.

    This part is ridiculous.

    Nominet were not obliged to launch the .uk TLD, and the complainant should not be able to use that mechanism (which the registrant didn’t choose or possibly want) against the .co.uk registrants to justify or legitimise TM claims which Nominet were warned about a long time prior.

    It's also complete false. Nominet specifically said that taking up .uk could not be an excuse for a successful DRS. It's in the public Q&A documents.
