Dear Sirs

We have been informed about the outcome of the latest ICANN-Meeting in Seoul 
and therefore are getting back to you: 


We are convinced that there is a clear demand for Geo TLDs and therefore 
support dotBERLIN for a new Top Level Domain BERLIN. Studies of the German 
Internet Association eco and separately conducted by dotBERLIN have shown that 
80% of businesses would be interested to register a .berlin domain name and 43% 
of individuals prefer www.mayor.berlin <http://www.mayor.berlin>  as their 
preferred domain name to find the Berlin mayor. Secondly we do not see any 
economic consultant or ICANN in the position to decide if a city or geographic 
region has a demand for its own identity. It should just simply be mentioned in 
the upcoming economic studies that there is a significant demand of cities, 
cultural, linguistic and geographic regions for their own TLD.


Therefore we urge ICANN to proceed with the introduction of new gTLDs. 
Arguments on this topic have been articulated on plenty occasions by new gTLD 
prospects and other members of the ICANN community, we do not want to repeat 
them here.


With best regards

Anja Seugling
