Mark, you just don't get it.  Anheuser Busch has been trying for decades now
to obtain the right to use "Budweiser" in Czechoslovakia, where there is a
senior user of that mark for beer who refuses to let AB use it there.

This lets big important companies like AB make an end-run around
inconvenient senior-users the world over.

And if your name is Wesson, then you can forget about ever having a personal
domain name.  Wesson is for guns and cooking oil, and that's it.
