      Let's look at the case of Apple.  All companies named Apple, with a trademark on "apple", in all different industries, had a shot at apple.info and apple.biz.  Whoever registered it first got it.  That was fair.

As far as UDRP, don't get me started.  There don't seem to be any standards in UDRP proceedings.  Many UDRP decisions pretty contradictory and arbitrary.  If you go with a panel rather than an individual arbiter, you have a much better chance of defending.

At least we agree on that.
