Subject: I wanted


for my poetry site.

From the poem - TO A SKYLARK by Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792-1822)

Like a glow-worm golden
In a dell of dew

The Danish Boy - William Wordsworth (1770 - 1850)

The Danish Boy walks here alone:
The lovely dell is all his own


Had I really wanted it - tough luck - Trademarks get priority.

Big business can claim every word in the dictionary:

e.g. Caterpillar tractors claimed 'cat' is 'their' trademark on the Internet - even though there are 1746 'cat' trademarks - IN THE U.S. ALONE.

Virtually every word is trademarked, Alpha to Zeta and Aardvark to Zulu, most many times over.

American Government violate the First Amendment by not allowing people to use these words.

They must be corrupt to allow this abuse of peoples rights and to give big business priority.
