Re: [wg-c] trademark law & new gTLDs
>To give you a flavor, the TM classifications have a special category for
"rope," which was a big thing when the categories were invented, but no
category for "computers." Virtually everything in the information economy
falls under the "misc" category. Not helpful.
Without commenting on whether a slavish reproduction of TM classification
is appropriate for DNs, the above comment is incorrect. Software is class
9, publications cl. 16, business information and online retail services cl.
35, online financial information cl. 36, telecommunications cl 38, online
entertainment and education cl 41.

are you saying that trademark classes themselves are inherently not
susceptible to rational analysis and cannot be distinctly mapped to TLDs
(e.g. as in the Simon Higgs document Kent refers to)? Apologies if this is
an obtuse question.
