>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.|
Apple already have apple.com
- it is hardly fair for them to be allowed in for apple.biz, apple.info etc. - when
all the other trademarks have not got theirs - is it?
Apple Computers can afford
more domain 'lottery tickets' than the smaller business, can't they?
slow rollout of TLD - the smaller businesses will NEVER get a chance for apple.TLD,
I am sure apple (the fruit) distributors would quite like a good short
name for commerce on the Internet also.
To me, UDRP is the legalized theft of peoples
intellectual property for the benefit of Big Business.
