Objection to a Closed Registry for .cloud

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 
institutions),
(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).

Thank you.
Sanj.
