According to Jean Guillon:
The Registry is doing a demonstration of use, using a short and memorable name. It is possible that such choice was made on purpose: after all, a fox is an animal too...but I doubt it. This kind of promotion looks like the one the ".sucks" Registry did when it launched: we could see a truck turning around the INTA conference with a big "www.inta.sucks". The problem here is that...the Registry is a usging Trademark without its consent.
Extract from the article:
"While there have been some grumblings about registries reserving dictionary terms that match trademarks, this may be the first case of a registry unambiguously targeting a brand".
