This guy is shooting himself in the foot for at least two reasons.

1) If he trademarks Bitcoin anywhere he will inhibit adoption of Bitcoin by mainstream thus inhibiting his potential revenue. If a merchant has to pay fees to this guy to utilize the name and/or accept Bitcoin what is to persuade them to use Bitcoin over Visa/MC/Other?

2) He apparently doesn't realize yet that possessing legal rights (wherever) doesn't prevent or provide protection against DDoS/doxing and other similar attacks.

For his sake I hope he finds some clue soon.
