perry.eu  (etc...) and one of mine:

All have different registrants.

Now, what I did think this week in Paris, listening to all this stuff, 
was that maybe there could be one big race/auction for something like 
mytrademark.sunrise, and then all the sunrise periods of all the other 
new tlds should automatically import as a reserved name, all the 
mytrademarks (but if the registration wasn't taken up by the end of the 
sunrise period, it could be thrown back in the pot).
