So books can only be written by the famous and people / small business cannot use
what words they wish.
People do make unauthorized books about places, people and
businesses you know.
Or is that what they are trying to stop?
The answer to that,
we both know, is YES.
Methinks you are intelligent enough to know what I am getting
*** Abuse of the Domain Name System - entirely for trademarks. The more famous
the better. ***
FOR EXAMPLE - JUST ON THE INITIALS JT.
Have not checked 200+
other countries - just a FEW examples of the mark JT in USA alone:
76326979 G & S: jewelry with or without genuine stones in 14Kt or 18 Kt Gold or Platnium
Number 75645537 G & S: eyewear, namely, sports goggles and sports visors for use
in motorcycling, skiing, and paintball games
Serial Number 75101028 G & S: series
of fiction and non-fiction books on a variety of topics
Serial Number 74399193
Incidentally I can just find Japan Tobacco JT logo in STYLIZED FORM ONLY.
Serial Number 74800232.
What about all these other JT trademarks in the USA and
the rest of world?
I am quite familiar with many of these cases - especially
the JT case.
There are thousands of businesses all over the world using the initials

> WIPO found that the respondent had no legitimate reason

Surely, like anywhere else, the market decides?
In fact, by not releasing
new TLD, it is ICANN that make artificial scarcity of a virtually limitless resource
- domain names.
What is the difference, say, to buying and selling baseball cards,
currently at prices up to $1.265 million? (grade 8 Honus Wagner).
So, people cannot
store antique cars with a view to "selling it to another person for **justifiable
They have to drive them?
> I won't go through each of your examples
of so-called common words, but ...
They are not 'so-called' common words - they
ARE common words.
> That's fine, but it doesn't solve the 'problem' of Coca-Cola
preventing others of using the domain name coke.com.
Nobody can 'pass-off' as coke.drink.us.reg
- so why is it a 'problem'?
They afraid that somebody might give the opinion that
it is tooth rotting liquid?
So Big Business want to stop free speech?
to that, we both know, is YES.
There are other problems that nobody is addressing.
instance, what about all the similar sounding domains that cause 'consumer confussion'
and 'trademark conflict'?
BIG QUESTION - Do you know why the trademark symbol was
We both know, but please answer it anyway.
So then - for that and ALL
the other reasons shown on my site, why not a TLD to replace it?
Could it be that
I am right - the Domain Name System is being abused for the benefit of Big Business,
to the detriment of peoples rights?
Please - Tell the truth, the whole truth and
nothing but the truth ;-)
