I was refering to domino.biz - the domino is trademarked by hundreds of businesses around the world.

This reason why you "don't remember your post where you specifically mentioned TLD's like .biz as untrademarkable." - is because I did not say it.

I seem to remember it being said by someone else (in court case?).

If you analyse correctly, you will see I was talking about SLDs.

Those words do not apply to .biz registry - because the .biz registry is unique. Or it was until duplicated by NeuLevel.

There was some qualifiers and other arguments - but like I say, my post above was merely pointing out, that the authorities ignore trademarks - WHEN IT IS CONVIENIENT FOR THEM TO DO SO.
