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, Networkown.com
    (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.

    Respectfully,
    BD Spicer
