FOR EXAMPLE, IF SOMEONE SET UP AMAZON.FAMILY OR AMAZON.UNION AND
"INCIDENTALLY" OPERATED A BOOK SELLING SERVICE THROUGH THAT SITE, WHY
SHOULDN'T AMAZON.COM BE ABLE TO OBJECT? DO MOST USERS OF THE INTERNET CARE
TWO HOOTS ABOUT WHAT TLD IS ATTACHED TO THE BRAND?
Uhhh, Mr. Rothnie, if they don't type the name of the TLD in properly they
won't go to the site. In that respect all users do and must care what TLD is
attached to the brand.
As new TLDs are introduced, more users will get used to this idea.
More to the point, a branded site they know and trust will be bookmarked by
The idea that a non-unique, non-coined, widely used term with multiple
meanings such as "amazon" should be controlled across all TLDs is just
