You say, "It is those cybersquatters as well that make the ordinary registrants miserable."
common word is trademarked - most many times.
People have been clever and got these
common words, as domains - it is their Intellectual Property.
Big business decided
it wanted to steal these words from people - even though these words are NOT just
used solely by them.
For them to claim it solely as their OWN - when it is word
shared by others - is an abuse of 'unfair competition' law.
This is why they do
not want a solution - so they can abuse their trademarks.
Cybersquatters was a
term invented to prejudice other people against those that bought domains - to make
it easier to take the legal owners Intellectual Property away.
I have WIPO.org.uk
- the United Nations World Intellectual Property Organization have WIPO.org
you call me a cybersqatter?
What about coined phrases - say if someone got Firestonetyre.com
to complain of 174+ deaths blamed on tyre blowouts?
Looks to me, like corporate
greed stopped the recall of these tyres for quite some time - so is corporate manslaughter.
names are not trademarks - ask Paul Mockapetris, DNS creator.
Nor can they be -
thousands of may share the same word, words or initials.
Trademarks identify the
source of goods or services - if not distinctive from others, then it is declared
To 'squat' means not to have legal claim - even though it was the legal
owners idea to register this word first.
Trademarks are so consumer can identify
the source of goods or services.
***Now if I claim to be WIPO ® or Firestone Tyres
® - then that would be illegal***
THIS IS WHY THEY DO NOT WANT .REG - SO THEY CAN
ABUSE THEIR TRADEMARKS
Open your eyes - it is all a load of bull* - they know solution.
