What are the United States Patent and Trademark Office
doing to help
resolve problems of trademarks on the Internet.
NOTHING - ZILCH
They should have told ICANN at least three things:
1 The domain name
must include classification (or sub class), as it is likely to cause consumer confusion
2 The domain name must include country, as it is likely to cause consumer
confusion if not.
3 That for just ONE company to be known by that ONE name worldwide
would be unfair to ALL the other holders of that name.
I sent a fax to the USPTO
over a week since, asking about those facts. Still waiting for answer. To answer
your question, something smells fishy. ICANNs history (before, during and after formation),
is suspect. There are more expert people than I, on this subject - read cook report
and roving reporter links near bottom of my protest site.
