As the holder of our own both US federally-registered and pending 
trademarks, our firm is nonetheless in complete agreement with the statements 
views of other like-minded, prescient domain stakeholders such as Michael 
Berkins; who are understandably very concerned about the unnecessary proposal 
grant unfounded, undeserved, and unearned additional rights to trademarks 

Such a move would in fact be an usurpation of the rights reasonably, 
legally, and in fact morally granted and held by those domains owners with the 
foresight to register generic domains; even if such generic words and phrases 
have been illogically granted trademarks. 

This is in fact nothing more than an intellectual property and asset "land 
grab" by those entities unhappy with the fact that others were first in 
registering generic words and phrases domains before said entities thought to 
register them for themselves.

As well demonstrated by the many UDRP cases where trademark holders were 
able to relatively easily, quickly, and affordably (compared to, i.e. having 
to file a court action to obtain the same relief), efficient paths already 
exist to address any concerns of proper trademark holders.

We are ourselves satisfied with the rules, laws, and remedies already in 
place to protect our trademark rights. Other current and future trademark 
holders should be as well.

We are therefore respectfully requesting that you not enable what the 
proposed URS really is: Stealing.

Thank you,
