IntemetAdvocate is _not_ InternetAdvocate. [Note that m looks like rn in Intemet.] This warning is needed, due to a fraudulent poser IntemetAdvocate using my name in the Real Name field and trying to pose as me InternetAdvocate.
|"A company cannot have trademark name associated with its business e.g. Apple Computers
cannot have the trademark 'computer'. This is why I said that any domains taken
in Sunrise are not allowed to be used for the OBVIOUS PRODUCT OR SERVICE USE - it
is an abuse of trademark. A science company WOULD NOT BE ALLOWED to have the
trademark 'science' - it is an abuse of trademark and unfair competition law that
one should have it."|
Same for domain names. A computer company with computer.info
would be in unfair competition with other computer companies. A directory of
computer companies or computer websites should have that domain.
