The LRO is working just fine, thank you

While agreeing that frontrunning and dubious trademark claims deserve to fail in an LRO, and noting that making the case against a generic word gTLD is particularly high since all authorities have held up to now that a top level domain cannot be a source identifier and therefore cannot be trademarked, I do think there’s one key consideration that’s not mentioned — and that is, if a company has a well recognized trademark in a generic word for specific lines of commerce the standard for prevailing articulated so far by LRO panelists is so high that the only way to assure that is not registered in the second round is to apply for it yourself, because if someone applied for it to use in a generic way unrelated to your business activities an LRO will not likely succeed.
