In fact no, not all generic names have been trademarked. Just because a few surprises have been trademarked (info, shop, shopping) does not mean all have. I don't see trademarks for creditcards or domains and I'm sure there are many more. The point is while i agree with you about the absurdity of  generic tms, many people find this a debatable area. There can be no debate however with the fraud we've seen with the fake tm apps in the afilias sunrise and in my opinion, we must not cloud the issues. They must eliminate this fraud first then correct this process that allowed this happened.  What you are saying is important and relevant I just think we are not even there yet.  I think you are just providing weasel room for people to avoid the fraud and make it is a discusion about generic tms.
