After several emails with USPTO, sent to Secretary Mineta and Secretary Evans:
would not answer main question - they avoided it.
Really pissed now - with all
their spin, lies and propaganda.
THEY DESERVE NO RESPECT.
This is my latest email
to Mr Drost Solicitor, Patent and Trademark Office DoC, April 17, 2001:
copy to Secretary Evans]:
Dear Mr Drost,
Please can you tell me, why do you
let certain trademarks abuse their mark on the Internet - to dominate over others
of similar name?
As you know, it is unlawful to do this - it is against unfair
I say this because you must know the answer. It is so obvious
The .reg is instead of trademark symbol. This then acts
as certificate of authentication and directory.
It is easier than telephone area
codes. If you can use the phone, then you can use dot REG.
But with fourteen attorneys,
six paralegal specialists and six clerical employees - you would be incompetent not
to have come to this already.
Also, do you agree that for the Secretary of United
States Department of Commerce to allow freedom of speech to be abridged on the Internet,
or anywhere, is contemptible.
Or do you deny using the Domain Name System to give
priority for trademarks is abridging free speech.
If so, do you even know the meaning
of the word abridge? It means to shorten - but I am being facetious (taking the micky).
so, the First Amendment must mean nothing to you also.
An early reply would be
much appreciated. This email will be displayed on WIPO.org.uk site - your actions
(or inactions) will be on record.
