Hmmm. I don't think you can do that in the U.S. - prevent use of a trademarked name for an entirely unrelated product. Does Australian law really allow trademarks that broad?? --FYBuggered if I know ... they turned down my trademark application, which was insanely narrow. They said something like "may be relevant to future industries".Domain names are very tightly controlled here with regard to trademark law. I would bet Oz has the tightest restrictions and scrutiny of registering a trademarked domain name of any country.On the other hand, Australian copyright and trademark law is forgiving sometimes where the US system is not. Who can make sense of it all There is no consistency anywhere. This kind of thing is quite baffling to me. I mean, I understand the principles of Intellectual Property, but the laws are all over the place.David
