Matrix42's view is that the proposed closed registry for all gTLDs, is 
anti-competitive and will
stifle innovation in the IT market, but most particularly in the IT
Cloud market which is still immature and developing.

We are building our own Cloud IT practices and this will
act as a brake on the development of market opportunities that
we have spent a lot of time and money developing and launching.   Any
generic term or word (such as .CLOUD) should not, in our opinion, be
exclusively available to any one organisation or vendor as it will
create an unfair competitive landscape giving the incorrect impression
that any one vendor is the sole and legitimate provider of Cloud
services - we believe this to be an unfair and biased market position
that can be prevented.


Undoubtedly this same argument can be applied to many other industries
and we strongly urge ICANN to prevent this closed registry being
implemented.
