Thank you Alex.
But most domains taken by UDRP and bullied from owners are not
'world famous' trademarks like Coca-Cola.
WIPO grabbed JT.com from Israel citizen
for Japan Tobacco Inc. Why should Japan Tobacco be allowed to have World Rights to
the initials 'JT'?
G> 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?
course it would. But you try telling the marketing executives of Coca-cola that their
new domain names should now be coke.everysinglecountryunderthesun.reg instead of
a single coke.com :)
They could still use coke.com for marketing - just redirected
to coke.drink.us.reg as certificate of authentication.
As to not naming book 'Coca-Cola':
the first 2 minutes I found these - so likely several more.

G> The authorities stop
even common words.
A> Yes but only when (for the very last time!) the marks
themselves are famous trademarks, a test often only really determined in court.
so all these domains taken by WIPO are famous trademarks:
video net, roller blade,
best locks, nitro fuel, tonsil, north face, marketing mix, 0xygen, edentist, state-farm,
new-gig, video direct, iphones, open mail, traditions, open view, unicode, southern
company, pc gateway, ultra pure water, time keeper, click here, current, beauty co,
sound-choice, e-auto-parts, eresolution, body and soul, talk about, esquire, office
specialists, crew, praline, the total package, faith net, buy PC, home interiors,
big dog, euro consult, music web, RANT...etc.
This is the tip of the iceburg -
most do not get this far. This is just one 'so-called' arbiter. Taking peoples legal
property - I would call WIPO, corrupt thieves.
