ICANN is not in a position to regulate the complexities of Trademark law,
particularly at the international level. Any policy or procedure that ICANN
undertakes will be overly burdensome and remain subject to legal
disagreement. As soon as you offer that domains represent the same as a
trademark you have opened pandora's box. If you must implement any trademark
strategy create a gTLD such as example.tm.us where the tm represents a
trademark and the specific country is included. Make the national
registration services responsible for those country codes responsible for
determining trademark who holds or doesn't hold a trademark. Please let the
rest of us live in calm without such useless legal shenanigans that only
benefit lawyers and corporations with deep pockets.
