To whom it may concern.
We at UNIT4 Business Software (globally) unanimously and unreservedly object to
.Cloud becoming a closed registry. We believe this is a generic term and that
all organisations and/or communities that have an association with the Cloud
(be this technologies, software, services, social networks etc.) should be
allowed to use this TLD.
We do support the reasonable compromise that has been put forward to allow some
generic terms to be registered as Restricted, Community and/or Closed TLDs (as
in the examples given below).
(i) Restricted TLDs (e.g., .bank being restricted to verified banking
(ii) Community TLDs (e.g., .ski for ski enthusiasts and related companies), and,
(iii) Closed branded TLDs where a company’s well‐known trademark also happens
to be a
dictionary term (e.g., .apple for Apple Computer).
