Subject: Vint - deny that words have been bastardised

Message:
 

 
This is aimed at Vint and 'chums' - I dare you all to deny my beliefs:

Trademarks get to steal words (that belong to everyone) in Sunrise for 'OPEN' gTLDs - before the public - OR they can take them later on in fatally flawed UDRP.

Vint and his gang know solution - a restricted TLD for trademarks.

To them, the apple is no longer a fruit - it is only a registered trademark for computer.

To them, the cat is no longer a pet animal - it is a registered trademark for tractor.

Paul Mockapetris did not create the Domain Name System just for Big Businesses - did he?

- the R in a circle signifies a registered trademark - you thieves, crooks and fraudsters.

A restricted TLD of .REG could be used to replace it - could it not?
