      Go to a third world country and pay US$100 as a bribe to the trademark official to register your trademark immediately and backdate it to 1891. That way, nobody can check your rights on the internet.

The universal trademark rule that applies for sunrise is the biggest and most stupid flaw in the system. Do you know how easy it is to get a "trademark" in a third world country???? Stupid! Stupid! Stupid!

The only FAIR solution is to designate USPTO and other major trading centres like the UK with an authoritative online database as the ONLY basis for trademark validification.

The USPTO, for example, allows foreigners to register trademarks. So no excuse!

What a joke. Isn't there anyone in ICANN smart enough to see this coming? Guess not, proof-of-concept??? Proof-of-stupidity.
