Subject: NO ONE can trademark Hawaii


      Hawaii is a descriptive term and should be difficult if not impossible to trademark. As you have illustrated, this is a case of Afilias corporate insiders taking advantage of their position with false claims to a generic term.

In court this could be an anti-trust violation as well as fraud.
