Subject: Supporting trademarks helps us all -kudos to IOD


IOD would give any registrant a one for one exchange if they hold a trademarked name. I think people whom register these names are foolish and deserve to loose the names to the TM holder.

I agree wholeheartedly.  Simply showing someone had a trademark filed or registered prior to the registration of the domain name is easy to do and answers this problem.  By addressing it forthrightly, the integrity of the system is enhanced. 

Trademark holders must protect their rights in all venues, not just domain names. It's not the responsability of the registrar to be judge and jury in TM disputes.

Absolutely correct.  Simply having procedures requiring a "court of competent jurisdiction" to intercede obviates this issue.
