hope it is still interesting for all the other participants of this forum to follow
the discussions between me and Kodo. Otherwise, please post a comment saying: "Stop
private discussions in this forum" and I will immediately stop answering to Kodo's
Kodo, if you read my comments correctly you will note that I never
said there should be a "first pick" for people who already own .com names.
of course I am somehow combining trademark holders and domain name holders, but only
in the cctlds and the following new gtlds to be created: .1, .tm and .reg.
other gtlds should be completely FREE of any trademark laws, giving the Internet
community much more liberty than it has right now.
Kodo, I do like competition,
believe it or not. And I strongly support your arguement:
"NO SPECIAL FAVORS
FOR EXISTING DOMAIN NAME OR TRADEMARK OWNERS !!!" (cited from Kodo's above text)
you can't give this strong argument whithout a solution to the problems existing!
And therefore you have to create new gtlds for special trademark purposes first.
