Subject: Wouldn't he have to prove protecting HIS mark?

IANAL, but wouldn't he have to prove protecting HIS mark?

e.g. If you had DellComputer.biz, then I presume Dell Computers could use a number of reasons to take it.

But if you had Dell.biz (not being used to sell computers) they could not use it - could they?

The word DELL belongs to other trademarks e.g. US Serial Number 72061365 G & S: PAPERBACK BOOKS AND PERIODICAL PUBLICATIONS. FIRST USE: 19430500. FIRST USE IN COMMERCE: 19430500

This is one of many reasons why there is essential requirement for .REG

Along comes trademark from another country, that you have never heard of, claims you are infringing on their mark.

Damned stupid morons running the system.
