A number of people
in the industry have approached The Register to express their displeasure and ask
people to think twice before entering the .biz registration process. The system in
place guarantees NeuLevel a maximised amount of non-returnable money before the domain
actually goes live.
If this sounds bad enough, NeuLevel approach to domain resolution
has been described by one industry figure as "decision by committee gone mad". Claiming
to make the process fair, NeuLevel has instituted a three-step process, each with
its own rules and closing dates.
It has no less than four dispute resolution policies
but despite this over-bureaucratic approach if two or more companies with legitimate
trademark claims apply for the same domain, it would appear that NeuLevel plans to
do the equivalent of pulling a name out a hat.
I say - why is anybody
If not all trademarks can use their mark on the Internet – then trademark
use on the Internet is an obvious lie.
It is against unfair competition laws.
authorities just allow Big Business to abuse their trademarks to dominate over other
Domain names cannot be trademarks without the trademark symbol or .reg
to replace it.
This symbol acts as warning, to advise the public that the mark
is federally registered and their use provides legal benefits - http://www.inta.org/basics/tmfaq.shtml#faq6
will not see any attorneys, big business or the authorities defend against this -
they are cowards.
What defence have these low-lifes against the truth?
I am frustrated
at their cowardliness - how can they be forced to face facts?
A saying we have
"Come and have a go - if you think you are hard enough."

When authorities could
put trademark identity beyond shadow
of doubt, they are either devoid of intelligence
