> What would happen if back in 1993 , Network Solutions trademarked the .com ?
> How can a potential customer feel secure about purchasing a .web domain
> name , if the extension is owned by another company?
> The .web Domains should be for THE WORLD to own , not for any one company.
> There should be many places to register a .web , not just one. We do not
> want another NetSol Monopoly on our hands!
> .WEB is a community , not a trademark owned by one company! There may be
> hundreds or thousands of disputes, by companies registering a .web , only
> to find out they will be spending MILLIONS of dollars on marketing
> campaigns, infringing on someone ELSES trademark!
> What will become of the .WEB world if this is allowed to happen ?!!! I
> believe a NEW entity should become the .WEB Registry (an unbiased entity)
