Subject: Has the creation of  AFILIAS been approved by respective authorities having supervision of cartels?


            Please allow me the following question:

Afilias was build out of 19 high-profile companies some of which had a competitive status beforehand and all of which were active in the same field: The Internet.
With the creation of Afilias this open and competitive status was changed towards a monopolist one.

Normally such a process, the organization in cartels, is monitored through respective authorities having supervision of cartels.

Did these authorities approve the creation of Afilias?
Before this happens, Afilias application is possibly worthless, because it may violate the cartel act.

Can anybody help me tracing back this major issue?
Thank you.

Friedrich Kisters
