    What exactly is "dumb" about his ideas? Consider his ideas themselves, not his (somewhat monotonous) manner of presenting them. What's the flaw in them?

    Cave of Lies
    by WIPOorgUK on Monday December 23 2002, @01:56PM (#10674)

    You know I have not told any lies - I challenge you to point one out on my website.

    Nor did I retreat from you - as the reader can see in previous posts below.

    Indeed - I proved you misrepresent me and told lies yourself.

    Why do you try so hard to divert attention away from the facts?

    Are you a corrupt lawyer - perverting Trademark and Competition Law on the Internet - to make loads of money from these problems?

    Just try to deny this - go on I dare you:

    Fact: In this vast ocean of domains on the Internet, mostly non-trademarks, a marker is absolutely essential - for people to identify the domain as trademark.

    Given virtually all words are registered trademarks many times over - how else are people to know?

    It is yourself, US DoC, ICANN and UN WIPO that live in the 'Cave of Lies'.
