Subject: This highlights precisely why allocating on basis of trademarks is an arse

>>To assume that Bora Bora island trademarks carry the same stringent approval validity and standards for international commerce as that of say USPTO is fundamentally flawed and totally lacking in responsibility to honest applicants.

But what can you do about that? People of Bora Bora Island have the same rights as people in the US. If they have a trademark, it has to be considered equal to a US tradmark, otherwise US companies/ people will always win over Bora Bora Island companies and people and that would be racially prejudice.

Adding an extra layer of prejudice onto a saystem which is already being abused by big business and without any honourable intervention by governments would make things even less fair. Perhaps it will happen. It wouldnt surprise me.
