It's the reason Clear Channel was able to promote that Coca-Cola already registered its trademark list during the .cc campaign. If Coca-Cola didn't, Pepsi would have had a shot at registering it. .buy shouldn't exist for the same reason. Everybody knows how to find .com... .buy needs something else like a better way to secure credit card numbers in order to be worth anything more than trademark problem avoidance.

This makes no sense other than being a money grab... Amazon can now charge Barnes and Noble for bn.buy, or redirect it back to Amazon. It seems .buy will just be a redirect to some page on Amazon, or be something trademark owners must buy in order to protect. Remember .cc resulted in refunds from Clear Channel.

I had this problem at a place I used to work... we were an "answer the e-mail" schedule, and we went six weeks without anybody in our department getting any work commands for the system. I had no choice but to tell my boss the reason why I couldn't close any tickets was because I had no tickets. We checked, saw we were at zero usage, got laid off, and claimed half our pay for the next 99 weeks.

The problem here is not dishonest work on the patent logs, it's dishonest work on the time cards/sheets that tell the bosses how much to pay. Uhm, some computer logging software is about to fall off the patent logs for 14 years being up!

He's dead, Jim.
