Your argument is based on flawed legal theory. Unfortunately, I have to refrain from discussing it while the case is pending. I sincerely wish we could discuss this.

Then again, this issue may be safely put aside. For the sake of this process, put the trademark issue aside, and presume that the current ruling stands, and that NOBODY may enjoy trademark rights in a top-level domain. This solves ICANN's concern, and allows them to evaluate the applications based on their merits.

Our application meets and in most cases exceeds ICANN's requirements. We also have over four years of experience running a registry (that the other .web applicants do not have). This, combined with a sense of fairness in the process, is more than enough for me.

So I'll be happy to concede the trademark argument here and now, and let's concentrate on the application itself. Fair?
