Probably because of idiots like me.
I sometimes mis-state something, of which I
know what I am talking- but do not put down correct.
To put record straight:
cannot trademark any generic word - if SAME product e.g. car company cannot have
You can trademark any generic word - if DIFFERENT product e.g. car
company can have word 'CASINO'
As stated in cut from my previous post:
trademarks, a generic word of same type as the class (product type) is not allowed.
IS AN ABUSE OF TRADEMARK LAWS - ask any TM attorney.
e.g. Apple Computers could
not apply for the trademark 'COMPUTER'
But a different class (product type) could:
UK trademark 1134604 - 'COMPUTER'
Proprietor: Dunlop Australia Limited
25: Stockings, panti-hose; socks and tights, all for wear.
You go to computer.info
and you could be seeing a screen with pair of tights on it.
So - EVERY generic
word bought in the sunrise period will lead you to a different class.
will not go to holiday site.
Going to a different subject (class) will cause 'consumer
confussion' - something trademarks are SUPPOSED to legally avoid.
***If it does
not go to different subject - then the domain name was taken fraudulantly in the
