Bad example, liquor licenses are issued by the government, the government
has set the laws.

Law enforces trade practices, not auDA, government has set these laws too.

auDA only sets the rules on the registration process and eligibility of
those domain names, they do not and can not restrict trade, period.

You can protect your brand through the IP laws, you don't need to register
all namespaces, and it's not the point, the point is only the government can
restrict what content can be displayed as I stated in a previous post.

Oh please, they have no right. What makes you think they control content on
the Internet?

No it's not, that's' totally different. I'd like to know how you could argue
this point, being that you believe it could be argued as a restriction of
trade.
