Comment Looks like a case of poor research (Score 4, Insightful) 190

Trademark holder did a poor job researching his trademark and finds prior use in a domain name now attempts to abuse anti cyber squatting laws to grab domain.
This is one of those areas of tech law that will need to be ironed out in the future perhaps adding a domain name check to the TM check when registering a trademark.
I hope the law going forward dose not favor the trademark holder over prior use owner.

Slackware was published in Walnut Creek, California right next door to Concord. (I live in Concord, had a chance to visit Slackware HQ and never did)
I think after WC CDrom shut down Slackware moved to Concord.
That may be why it matters.

Also building code enforcement takes bribes so even a 4.0 might fuck some buildings up.

Quark! Quark! Beware the quantum duck!
