Subject: Sunrise does not solve 'consumer confusion', 'trademark conflict' or 'passing off'

Virtually every word is trademarked, be it Alpha to Zeta or Aardvark to Zulu, most many times over.

MOST share the same words or initials with MANY others in a different business and/or country.

For example, the World Trade Organization (WTO) shares its initials with six trademarks - in the U.S. alone (please check). Conflict is IMPOSSIBLE to avoid.
