Dear Sir, Madam,

 

The Booksellers Association of Spain represents 1,865 retail outlets selling
books. 

The Booksellers Association Spain strongly opposes any applications for a
“closed generic” gTLD, especially if submitted by commercial entities
operating in a sector of activity related to the closed generic gTLD. 

In the case of a closed generic gTLD .book, the exclusivity granted to the
winning applicant would de facto strengthen the position of the biggest
bidder to have sole use of the gTLD in the book industry and would therefore
be anti-competitive, discourage innovation and new entrants and be
detrimental to the industry as a whole. 

We are therefore asking ICANN not to offer for sale a generic gTLD for .book
and other similar words in general usage. 

Yours faithfully
