[bc-gnso] Does your organization believe ICANN has completed the economic studies that were promised?
Hi folks, There seems to be a difference of opinion as to whether or not ICANN has completed the economic studies that were promised by the Board, before the launch of any new TLDs. The NTIA/DOC/DOJ mentioned this in their own comments: http://www.ntia.doc.gov/comments/2008/ICANN_081218.pdf My company does not believe the Carlton reports were in any way adequate. From the other comments I've read, most people do not believe they've been adequate. I believe this should continue to be a BC position, that the studies to date do not meet the standard that we expect. However, let's all go on the record --- what does your organization believe? Do further economic studies need to be completed before new TLDs are launched? Yes/no and why? And should the BC take a position? Sincerely, George Kirikos 416-588-0269 http://www.leap.com/
