Dish launches Oprah Winfrey network OWN

    Dear Oprah

    I have for some years been the owner of the unused, trademark free
    and yet to be developed generic domain name,
    (Network Our World Now), and much to my surprise when I type it
    in on any search engine, separated with or without the .com the immediate
    results are Oprah’s, Network OWN, web sites. Network OWN, not
    being an acronym but a strong and easy to remember brand name is already in
    irreversible use on the websites. With the importance of the internet easy access
    I thought you might find this interesting. If not, please disregard this message.
