To suggest that the famous companies to use .TM and
.REG TLDs is the same as to ask firms in Manhattan to relocate to South Pole. Sure
they can increase their sizes thousand times, but who else will go there to visit
The famous companies are famous because they have been good for
many years. I am so tired of the whining that rich companies registered all the names.
Why don't use your brains creatively to find some good domain names.
corporations registered many trademarks. But for whom? For their shareholders and
their customers. They are protecting their customers and shareholders values, no
more no less. Without these shareholders and customers, they would not be so famous
However, if only the famous trademarks are given protection, that may create
another problem - restricting the growth of the smaller companies. Therefore, all
the consequences have to be considered before any actions are taken.
there are still some domain names available under .COM, .NET, and .ORG. If not, why
canít people use MYCOMPANY.AOL.COM or MYFIRM.NS.COM. I still want people convince
me why people want MYCOMPANY.WEB instead of MYCOMPANY.AOL.COM?
Well, behind this
domain debate, there are always some hiding agendas. You know, I know, and everybody
Not speak for any organization
