Subject: Dot-Biz [business] does NOT cause confusion with Dot-Bz [Belize]. Duh!

        According to http://www.icann.org/tlds/correspondence/esi-v-icann-13nov00.htm:

Defendant Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers ("ICANN") is a California non-profit corporation with certain administrative responsibilities for technical management of the Internet, derivative of the U.S. Department of Commerce. Plaintiff Economic Solutions, Inc. has entered into a contract with the Central American country of Belize to attempt to commercially market Internet domain names ending with ".bz," Belize's country code top level domain ("TLD") suffix. Aware that ICANN's annual board meetings are to occur this week, plaintiff seeks a TRO enjoining ICANN from establishing a new generic TLD of ".biz," ".ebiz" or any other designation which would be confusingly similar to the ".bz" TLD.

Like Dot-com is confusingly similar to Colombia's dot-co TLD?  Yeah, right! Plaintiff Economic Solutions, Inc. is a greedy moneygrubber trying to corrupt the system for self-enrichment at the expense of all others.
