         Dear Afilias!      
      I'm just finding out today which 'sunrise' pre-registrations have been granted.  Many, many of the registrations are not trademarks filed with the uspto.gov site.  They are generic names and not able to be trademarked as individual words!

  So.  I have spent much time and some money on throwing my 'hat in the ring' on trying to pre-register some names  . . only to find out that they were registerd by you weeks ago . . . and they aren't even trademarks!  Registrants in Great Britain, Korea and many other places, have gone way out of bounds on this!! Fairly simple for you to have checked on those 'trademarks' before allowing registrations to happen!

In addition . . .I see that to challenge such illegal actions, you will charge $295.00 to me for each challenge?  This is starting to feel very unsavory . . .or at the least . . . A MESS!  It feels like you are about to make lots of money on the challenge end of your venture :)

I'd like to hear from you about this.

Regards,  john brola   jbrola@earthframes.com
