This is just one reason why domains as trademarks is so blinking stupid - they cannot
Trademarks HAVE TO (by law) protect even slight variations of their name
in every TLD - as it causes 'consumer confusion'.
Even though there may be hundreds
or thousands of other trademarks using the same words - all over the world - so there
are bound to be conflicts.
It amounts to a Trademark Tax!
The Internet is being
run either by:
1. The most pathetic, ignorant, and moronic imbeciles on the whole
flipping planet !!!
2. Groups of corrupt officials, legal establishment and business
These are clever people folks - my money is on number 2 - corruption.
solution is simple:
apple.com is redirected to apple.computer.us.reg
word 'Apple' with 727 others in the USA alone (plus all those in 200+ countries).
Records in the UK could then get apple.info - redirected to apple.record.uk.reg
'consumer confusion', 'trademark conflict' or 'passing off' there then.
acts as certificate of authentication and directory.
So somebody in US after Apple
computer could enter apple.com or apple.computer.us.reg
They are all corrupt
