If I have said it once, I have said it a hundred times.

It is an opportunity to screw more money from ordinary people and allow Big Business to further to illegally expand the overreaching of their trademarks.

Sorry to repeat for our regular readers ;-)

The authorities have been using lies and propaganda; As example, ask them to deny this:

THOUSANDs of new open TLDs will not solve any problem - even if every one has 'Sunrise Period'

It will not solve 'consumer confusion', 'trademark conflict' or stop anybody 'passing off'.

Also, as an example on Sunrise, thousands of trademarks using word 'Apple' have no guarantee of being able to use name.

Apple computers will still protect and make claim to every Apple.[anything] - even though they share word with 727 others in the USA alone (plus all those in 200+ countries).
