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.

Afilias even jump the queue ahead of trademarks for SEARCH - ABOUT - ADDRESS - DIRECTORY - ETC. ETC.

It is about the injustice of authorities abusing their powers - to abridge the right of common people to common words.

In the real world trademarks have symbol after them - why not on the Internet?

Trademarks 'raison d'ętre' is to identify source of goods or services - not claim world rights to a word.

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