I am VERY delighted to have this critical appraisal. Thank you.
>how about DeltaAirlines.com
I was taking it that both Delta Airlines and Delta Faucets
had the trademark of 'DELTA' - In the current situation they would try and get it
off you even if not.
>Seriously, if you had delta.air.us.reg, you would have to
have: Delta.faucets.us.reg, Delta.pizza.us.reg
Seriously, which of the above you
buy your pizza from?
It does not take a genius to answer that. It stops 'consumer
confusion' - which is what TM is all about.
>Not realistic, not desireable
can see it not being desireable - BUT all the 3062 records shown at www.uspto.gov
would like delta.com. What about 200 countries? How can they all have it? .REG would
give them all equal standing in the same TLD.
The main advantage for the Internet
- it would stop fraud (.REG bills and items are guarenteed source) and trademark
It would also stop all this rubbish about trademark infringement, cybersquatting,
coming across sex sites by accident etc. etc.
As for not realistic - sorry you
are wrong. Within TM system there are 42 classes. Companies of same name are not
allowed to overlap each other, ask USPTO.
The main point of .REG is to make the
Internet lawful. This LESS complicated than telephone area codes. We can ALL manage
those can't we? Only big business would say we are too stupid to understand.
has nothing to do with WIPO.org
