"Closed Generic" gTLD Applications

The Booksellers Association of Switzerland ("Schweizer Buchhändler- und 
Verleger-Verband SBVV) represents  about 500 book selling businesses.

The Booksellers Association of Switzerland is of the strong opinion that 
“closed generic” gTLD applications  have to be invalidated  when submitted by 
commercial entities operating in a sector of activity related to the closed 
generic gTLD .

In the case of a closed generic TLD like .books,  the exclusivity granted to 
the winning applicant would de facto strengthen the position of a single  big 
operator in the book industry and would  be detrimental to the industry as a 
whole.
