410 explains ICANN/Afilias Sunrise Period best:
"This is ICANN's way of testing
for "Proof of Concept."
Why should they have used logic and forethought when they
can set a process up for total failure, blame others and delay further rounds in
will say it again - Sunrise is propaganda:
Ask any of them (ICANN, WIPO, US DoC,
even Afilias) to deny this:
THOUSANDs of new open TLDs will not solve any problem
- even if every one has 'Sunrise Period'.
e.g. Thousands of trademarks using word
'Apple' have no guarantee of being able to use name.
Apple computers will still
protect and make claim to every Apple.[anything] - even though they share word with
727 others in the USA alone (plus all those in 200+ countries).
It also will not
solve 'consumer confusion', 'trademark conflict' or stop anybody 'passing off'.
just wish to abuse trademark powers for 'unfair competition' and also, by abridging
your use of these words, violate your First Amendment rights.
No lawyer or official
has got logical response to these charges - they are cowards.
They cannot fight
the truth - so they take the fifth.
