That status doesn't mean that there is someone else with rights to it or that there is a disagreement over them.  It is just a way for the registar to obviously protect the domain.

It doesn't happen that quick.  There is a period when the registar can still renew and then there is a time when it is possible for the name registrar of the domain to sell it.  After that it is normally openly available for purchase often through a drop registrar.

I hope this helps.

lnrivera,

That means that the group or individual that registered the name has prohibited the name from being transfered.  This can be changed by the registar only.  It really is just a lock, no matter what you would need permission from the registar to get the domain.

Let me know if you have any questions or need more information.
