Subject: In fact, false .biz TM Claimants may be their own worst enemy ?

Thanks for your opinions, guys.

I have to say, the .biz system ('illegal lottery' aside!) seems a more equitable one than .info.

What astonishes me is the thousands of people who falsely claimed trademarks to generic names (paying $90 a pop) and yet it won't make a difference to their chances of actually winning the name, just stopping it if its an obvious violation (which one would assume is difficult to prove in a case of a generic word).

Perhaps they thought that they could get a leg-up by lying ? Quite ironically, it may even hinder their chances of successful registration because another challenger could show that the registration was in 'bad faith' (i.e they were claiming a TM they don't have).

Cheers,
Dave
