It is about the injustice of losing your greatest opportunity to profit from your
own idea, to register this word(s).|
It is about the injustice of authorities giving
fraudsters, both in and out the industry, priority to jump the queue.
jump the queue ahead of trademarks for SEARCH - ABOUT - ADDRESS - DIRECTORY - ETC.
It is about the injustice of authorities abusing their powers - to abridge
the right of common people to common words.

after them - why not on the Internet?
Trademarks 'raison d'ętre' is to identify

This is why I truly
believe the authorities (US DOC, UN WIPO and ICANN) are corrupt.
