Subject: ...so, what's the answer?

Please could someone answer this question? When I initially applied for fizz.biz I was told that a TM claim had been made for it by the BBC and I was asked if I still wanted to apply for it (that was back in the autumn)

So I decided I would not apply, because what's the point if I'm challenged by someone with a TM claim who's going to take it off me?

Now we're invited to pre-register again for these 40000 .biz names. What I don't understand is: are most of these names already reserved for TM claimants, or is it genuinely "first-come-first-served"?

Will the BBC, who submitted a TM claim for fizz.biz, be able to take the name off me, if I pre-register it, and turn out to be the lucky one who is allocated it?
