        Well, telling major corporations: "Take it to the UDRP" will only alienate those very corporations that are necessary to give credibility to any gTLD.  If American Airlines or Microsoft has to fight just to get their unambiguous, non-generic trademark in the form of a .WEB domain name, then they won't want to be bothered with that TLD. 

Afilias and Neulevel have raised the bar with sunrise periods, now any new gTLD, in order to woo blueblood corporations, must provide some protection to non-ambiguous, non-generic trademarks.  Sunrise, in its current form, is greatly flawed.  So IOD should propose something better than sunrise, deal with the obvious squatted names now, not later, so Hans nor any other director can later label IOD a squatter's haven, and deny IOD inclusion on those grounds.
