Happening with new gTLDs: what Trademarks wanted to avoid at all costs

A "club is a club": sports clubs, fan clubs, night clubs to use a domain name ending in ".club".
Thank to ICANN for allowing such new gTLDs like ".sucks" to exist, the first dirty squatting start to happen.

Extract: "The site solicits commentary about WHATEVER — a liberal arts university in Massachusetts that owns a US trademark on “WHATEVER” — but does not yet publish any such criticism".
