Sorry for my ignorance.  Can anyone give me more info about this?

>NEW POLICY ON INTERNET ADDRESSES

Should be NEW POLICY ON INTERNET DOMAIN NAMES!!?

>Network Solutions Inc., the computer networking unit of Science
>Applications International Corp., will no longer assign Internet addresses
>on a first-come-first-served basis, if the address represents a trademarked
>name of another company.  If an individual owner of such an address refuses
>to relinquish it, Network Solutions will suspend use of that address.  In
>the past, individuals have registered names such as "mcdonalds.com" without
>owning the trademark to that name.  (Wall Street Journal 7/27/95 B12)

Thanks in advance.
