Subject: you can trademark every word in the dictionary

Message:
 

 
you can't trademark apple for fruits or apples but...

you can get TM orange for a mobil phone company
you can get TM apple for computers
you can get TM mercedes (a first name) for cars

therefore you can get TM business mybe for socks, toilett paper and so on

How often do I have to say it again?

p.s.: a bad person has a TM "sex.shop" in the field of tanning oil (see it? not for sexshops, for tanning oil!) and wanted to get my domain sex.shop (from new.net). But as long I don't sell tanning oil everything is o.k.
This guy also has TMs on sex.web, sex.info, sex.biz,...
You see: sunrise periods are something for scammers!
