Re: [ga-tm] Domain Name Owners' Bill of Rights
With all due intent on cooperation; There is a debate maxim that states; He
who defines the issue wins.
By placing this discussion within the Registry(Verisgn) Registrar's grasp you
take away the most important reason for putting it in place as a check against
the overbaring TM lobby. Registrars are specifically exempt from liability in
TM claims and maintain this by avoiding action with regard to such matters, an
interesting change will take place with the new "sunrise crapola", but for now
their involvment with a bill of rights will change the landscape. A Bill of
Rights is specifically a DH versus a TMH issue.
I must say that I am not completely confident this is the case but it should be
addressed before just being assumed one way or the other.
