                If you go to, you can read about Leah Gallegos's .BIZ, and how she did not apply to ICANN for inclusion in ICANN's root. You see, there are a handful of other roots (five I believe), all operating worldwide.  Not everyone wants to be in ICANN's root, and they have the right not to.  Just because they don't want to be in ICANN's root doesn't mean ICANN can take their product and hand it to another company. 

All the other roots work together, globally.  ICANN's root is the only one not working with the others.

Does this clarify it for you?
