"ICANN has neither the authority nor the resources" - Mike Roberts

"... the marketplace is allowed to determine the terms under which registrars and domain-name holders will deal.  This approach allows the parties to choose provisions that reflect local business conditions, legal jurisdictions, and other considerations.

ICANN has neither the authority nor the resources to be a consumer protection agency, and in any event there are existing protections for abuses ... such as better business bureaus, trade commissions, etc in most of the countries in which domain name activity is present."

..... Mike Roberts, Interim President/CEO, ICANN, Tue, 5 Oct 1999 09:24:35 -0700 (PDT)

Guess that puts the trademark question to bed ...
