RE: [wg-b] Just a thought
Sometimes the best idea, is the one already done.
If the "focal point" of this group has become how to ensure trademark
protection in the domain name system*, then that goal is already met, more
than adequately, by the UDRP and legislative remedies already in place.
If however, the goal of this group has become "to placate the Trademark
Lobby ... (you all know the rest)" at any cost, then we have a different
"focal point", and should stop talking apples and oranges.
And you Michael, as WG-B chair, should say so, so that we're all on the same
page and stop wasting everyone's time.
*Last October you wrote me, "Our focal point must remain what protection if
any do famous trademarks have." When did this change?

Subject: [wg-b] Just a thought
The purpose of a Working Group is to stimulate IDEAS. One of the rules that
I was taught about brainstorming is that there are never any wrong ideas,
only some that are better than others. Unfortunately there have only been a
small handful of people that have offered solutions to the problems facing
this Working Group, although there never remains a shortage of people
willing to criticize the work of the handful of people putting ideas
forward. My latest idea will not be incorporated into the Working Group B
Final Report. In fact, I believe most will find it very minimalistic.
P.S. I would like to thank Harold for his idea. If anyone else has any other
ideas that have not been discussed please send them my way.
