All trademarks are legally afforded the same protection - are they not?

Is it not true - using name.class.country.reg would allow each to be unique and totally distinctive - as the Law requires trademarks to be?

apple.computer.us.reg and apple.record.uk.reg would stop 'consumer confusion', 'trademark conflict' and 'passing off'?

Why then do the authorities allow some trademarks to dominate over others?

If the printing press was introduced now, would they be allowed to stop what the book was to be called?

The authorities stop even common words. Now that we are empowered to publish our own 'books' - that is what they do.
