If it is not then I would say you could argue the point...
Go ahead and share the name - read most agreements and you'll see that almost any registry and/or registrar can cancel any name it wants to for any reason (Stated in terms, not saying they could legally back it up if push came to shove.)..
Gotta love terms of servies. (sarcastic!).
Looks like everyone has clearly made it open that it's allowed, but if you MUST have it talk to a lawyer for legal advise.
Note saying that even if you do contact a lawyer you well stand a chance at getting but always helps.
Allan the domain is SPAIN.ES.
I called the registrar and told me that .es didn't approved the registration. I told the sales rep that my name already showed up in whois info. I was even able to change the DNS...

3. When in the Registry false or incorrect data consist.

5. When the assigned names of dominion fail to fulfill the norms of syntaxes regulated in the section First of the Disposition Eleventh of Order ITC/1542/2005, of 19 of May and other anticipated conditions of allocation to the effect in the National Plan. If You it thinks that a dominion "es" is in some of the cases previously reviewed, it will be able to ask for the cancellation of the same one, sending a document to the direction of electronic mail firstname.lastname@example.org, according to the model established, in which it will have to be identified properly and to credit the breach of the conditions of allocation in the predicted terms previously, according to the Instruction by which the procedure of cancellation of dominions settles down "es"...
That's an irrelevant question, really. What you're probably asking is is it legal.
Which it is, anyway. Whether it's immoral, unethical, whatever depends on the.
Side of the fence you choose to be on...
Hmmm.......not too familiar with the .es rules but I know for the .de there's a physical requirement of presence for the reg or admin. I know the registries will still let you register via a proxy (usually), but not wanting any trouble down the road re a technicality I have my aunt in Germany as my admin on my .de domains...
