Telnic confused its own companies

Post by Tim Spears on Tue 09 Sep 2014, 7:02 am

Telnic made always clear that Telnic and Telnames are two separated companies and customers have to address them through different channels.

In current publications they mix up both company names:

Ian has been CMO at Telnic ( www.Telnames.com ) for 4 years ...

Ian Bowen-Morris seems to switch companies as he likes!

@Tim Spears - you can't blame a journalist for getting the two "entities" confused - same CEO, same CTO (till Henri left recently), same offices, same support staff, etc !

In fact I would imagine it gets very wearisome to have to remember which of the two companies you are speaking on behalf of today, when we all know to all intents and purposes they are the same organisation.

All this confusion was created as part of an attempt to bypass the ICANN regulations which does NOT allow a Registry to own more than a certain percentage of a participating Registrar - I can't remember the exact percentage but it's well below the 100% ownership of Telnames Ltd by Telnic Ltd.

This allowed Telnic/Telnames to introduce a new and improved product as shown by http://YourBusiness.tel and then not only DENY EXISTING REGISTRARS ACCESS TO IT but also SELL IT DIRECT TO THEIR REGISTRARS OWN CUSTOMERS !  

This depended for legality on the technicality that Telnames is NOT TECHNICALLY A REGISTRAR BUT A RESELLER for the ICANN Registrar Key Systems.

You know the phrase "if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, IT'S A DUCK" - well that apparently doesn't apply to the Telnames setup !

I hope a certain management team won't mind a bit of business advice - MISLEAD, CONFUSE, IGNORE AND TRY TO GET ONE OVER ON CUSTOMERS AND IT WILL COME BACK TO HAUNT YOU !

THE POPULAR PHRASE IS "WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND !"

I'm curious:
Does Telnic regret the stupid idea documented here meanwhile after Telnic has to live with a minimal amount of customers as the consequence: http://www.teltalk.org/t559-icann-complaint-against-telnames ?

Telnic doesn't need to regret anything, because it's the only company in the world that doesn't need customers! Or am I wrong?

Telnic should acknowledge that they have done a big strategic mistake.
The best way to correct this is to deliver the Telnames template to all customers.
