Do Registry Operators have to offer any sort of dispute resolution policies for registrations in their Sunrise Periods?

Yes. All Registry Operators must offer a Sunrise Dispute Resolution Policy (SDRP), which will allow challenges to Sunrise Registrations related to Registry Operator’s Allocation and registration policies, including on the grounds that the domain name that was registered does not match the Trademark Record on which the Sunrise-Eligible Rights Holder based its Sunrise Registration. Because each TLD’s Sunrise Period registration policies can be different, the Registry Operator has discretion when designing its SDRP. A complete SDRP must be included in the TLD Startup Information.
