Network Solutions Interesting "Trademark Free Zone" Disclaimer

Noticed today when visiting a parked domain name populated by PPC ads. Network Solutions apparently populates parked and unused domains with PPC ads. There was a link at the bottom of the page to this pop-up disclaimer:


TRADEMARK FREE ZONE - Network Solutions has no knowledge of whether any content on this page violates any third party intellectual property rights . Network Solutions will promptly remove any content reasonably objected to by the Owner of a pre-existing trademark. If you have a Trademark issue, please contacttrademarkfreezone@networksolutions.com.

By simply putting the disclaimer , Are they free from TM infringement ?

Its a good question @anonymous. I am not sure that that would really fly. That kind of argument has not really worked when it has come to domain name disputes, as some panelists have made the domain name owner of a parked page responsible for whatever appeared.
