You mention Amazon.com - let us use that as example.
Am I the only one that can
see that trademarks are abusing their powers here?
Are the authorities imbeciles?
are many 'AMAZON' trademarks all over the world.
Why should Amazon dot COM be allowed
to apply for all AMAZON dot WHATEVER TLD?
I thought the idea of sunrise was to
let all trademarks use their name.
Amazon.com already have a web presence - so
are stopping all the other 'AMAZON' trademarks.
How are other 'AMAZON' trademarks
ever supposed to get on the Internet?
There are hundreds!
Please just check one,
US trademark Serial Number 71173380
Filing Date December 15, 1922
FIRST USE IN COMMERCE: 1904-07-01
The trademarks make claim of
'consumer confusion', 'trademark conflict' and 'passing off' to anything that even
sounds like word on Internet.
They use these EXCUSES to steal names off people
in UDRP and other legal actions.
As the 1904 trademark used the word 'AMAZON' before
the book place - surely the dot com belongs to them?
They had customers long before
founder of book place was born.
Have not checked the other 200+ countries.
more importantly, you are not allowed to get AMAZON dot WHATEVER TLD - so abridging
peoples rights to use these words.
Proper use of trademark requires ® to give warning,
to advise the public that mark is legally registered.
A new TLD of .REG will do
the exact same thing - and much more.
The authorities are expert in the use of
spin, lies and propaganda.
Do you believe they are really that thick?
intelligent people on this forum, answer me this:
