.net domain seizures

I don't know where to start, but to say that this potential ruling could be 
exercised in the most arbitrary, and patently unfair ways imaginable. 

My domain, spiv.net, is for my personal use And for the dissemination of 
technical information. I have been using this domain for approximately 15 
years, and was unable to secure the .com domain due to a cybersquatter. Once 
the .com domain was released a musical act secured the rights, and under this 
ruling could possibly lay claim to my domain claiming prior use and copyright 

Although .net domains have been used for commercial enterprises, the prevalence 
of .com, .co, .biz, and other extensions provide many options to rights holders 
to extend their reach.

I respectfully request that you deny this motion and remove a potentially 
disastrous situation from many domain holders such as myself.
