>And second, that the ICANN staff felt that even though they erroneously thought
we had a poor proposal, we still merit further consideration (negotiation with ICANN
towards becoming a registry).<|
As I understand it, negotiation begins *after* the
winning applicants are selected. See the link below.
>Finally, we have the (tm)
mark on .Web because the case is not over. We are appealing the case because we feel

Have you read the USPTO material? I'm not a lawyer, but it's pretty obvious
from reading it that a TLD cannot be trademarked. I think you might be able to claim
prior use, and a court could decide on that, but a trademark seems out of the question.
Furthermore, a search on the USPTO trademark database brings up no results for '.web'?
So obviously the USPTO hasn't accepted a trademark application for you. I'm at a
loss to understand your claims because the law seems very clear in this regard.
