.中国 domain and trademarks

Hey all,
I've been trying to register some .中国 domains and have had varying success.

Most of them (>80%) have been rejected by CNNIC and stating that they violate third party interests (more specifically, trademark rules), even though they're very ambigious and general terms like, say "sky" or "car". I called CNNIC myself and they've given me their trademark website to search for trademark terms but the link is often down and unsearchable.

Can anyone shed any light on why this process is so difficult, and/or if it's more attributed to the registrar? We've tried a number of different registrars but all to the same effect. I've searched all over the web and nobody appears to mention why most of these domains aren't even registrable. What's the best way of going about this? Do we actually need to set up a trademark in order to purchase them?
