The Australian and New Zealand Association of Antiquarian Booksellers 
Association (ANZAAB) wishes to register its strong objection to Amazon’s 
application to become the registry operator for the generic Top Level Domains 
.book, .author, and .read.

It is ANZAAB’s position that commercially significant generic terms such as 
.book should not be controlled by a single corporate entity. (This position is 
shared by the Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association of America.) Amazon 
exclusively owning such top level domains would confer an unfair advantage in 
the marketplace. The operation of such domains as closed is anti-competitive 
and does not serve the public interest.
