Leon - if you wrote a book about a country, would the royalties belong to their government?

Would you stop people writing about countries?

Do all maps belong to the government of country?

Perhaps you would let people use Country355miles22degreesSEofCountryWithStarsAndStripesFlag.com - that is if Stars and Stripes isn't trademarked.

I believe domains like England.uk and America.us should belong to the countries government - and those like Liverpool.uk to belong to people of city or towns.

Anything else just stops free speech.
