[wg-b] opportunity to pre-empt, or license to infringe?

Steve Hartman, Nabisco, says,

"[The Sunrise Proposal] simply allows trademark owners the opportunity to
pre-empty speculators and cybersquatters."

Cybersquatting involves infringement of trademark rights and is actionable.

Speculating is legal and legitimate activity.  Trademark owners have no
legal right to infringe on speculators' activity.
