    You make some good points Gary....

    BTW:  Mount Rushmore is not TM'd (even though the WHOIS record shows a TM date of 1/1/1900) ...Full Explanation below:

From Afilias website (10/3/01)

On trademark information ....
You may notice that some Start-Up names have trademark information which makes them appear similar to Sunrise names. It is important to note that Registrars had the option of submitting trademark field information during the Start-Up period. The Registry did not require this information to be submitted during Start-Up (unlike Sunrise registrations where these fields were mandatory).

If authorized Registrars submitted information in these fields to Afilias for Start-Up names, they were accepted and processed "as submitted". The information in the WHOIS is exactly as submitted by the sponsoring Registrar.

On dates ....
You may find that Start-Up names have creation dates as early as September 12, the date that Afilias opened the registry for registrars to submit pre-registration requests. The "CREATED ON" date corresponds to the date that the registrar submitted their request to Afilias. Afilias processed all Start-Up applications only after the close of the Start-Up period.
