You seem to think that I am against trademark holders - I DEFINATELY AM NOT.

Trademarks protect the public as much as business.

Facts that poke the corporate bullies in the eye

Number one primary overiding fact:

Trademarks are so consumer can identify the source of goods or services.

It is trademarks 'raison d'Ítre'

Everybody and his dog knows that.

***

Number two:

For a trademark to use its mark to gain dominance over another, is against 'unfair competition' law.

If you think I am "Fighting the global trademark system" - you totally miss the point - by miles!

I fight those that abuse it to bully others.
