idea of reserving .reg for registered trademark holdersmay not be workable.
As I understand it, the same word may be used as a trademark by two or more different
companies,as long as they're in different businesses so there's nochance
of confusion. One example of this is the name VAX, trademarked by DEC (now
Compaq) for computers and by a Britishcompany for vacuum cleaners. Another
example is Apple Records and Apple Computers (though I think that became a bit
tricky when Apple Computers started providing music capabilities). I've even
seen a PC retailer called Sun Computers, though thatmay have infringed.
two different companies own the trademarks on Acmemarshmallows and Acme rocket
shoes, who gets acme.reg?
