These new TLD will not solve the trademark problems - will they ICANN?

Why are the media not reporting on the facts of this?

Are the THESE people slow of mind, or just protecting big business?

Sunrise is load of propaganda - Neulevel will not be able to answer my question, out of hundreds or thousands of trademarks - "Who gets domino.biz"

AOL Time Warner took aimster.com from the legal owner, on the premise it was protecting its own trademark.

Aimster includes “aim” - an AOL trademark.

There are 345 “aim” trademarks in the USA alone.

To claim to be protecting own trademark, it has to be your unique trademark - else yours is not distinct from others of same name - which is illegal.

Nearly every domain “infringes trademarks” or “confuses users” - because of the authorities, it cannot be helped.

It is just bull* excuse used to steal domains.

One of main reasons for all this; Big business want to abuse their trademarks - to dominate namespace.

Their arguments are just spin, lies and propaganda.

Why do the media not point out the obvious lie - "aim" belong to hundreds of marks before AOL.

And many more in two hundred other countries.

There is only one answer - name.class.country.reg.

US Government cannot deny this - ICANN cannot deny this - can you ICANN?

They are all cowards - they dare not answer.

I dare each member of ICANN to answer.

In my honest opinion - you all chickens, like Secretary Don 'Littlechick' Evans (US DoC).

P.S. Can you all send me headshot photos - I have this idea for animation of you all running around a chicken shed.
