Subject: Toubling Aspects Of Afilias Application


        D3.  The addresses and telephone and fax numbers of all other business locations of the registry operator.

None, at present.

D7.   Number of employees.

           Afilias currently has a thirteen member Board of Managers, and no other employees.

D8.   Registry operator's total revenue (in US dollars) in the last-ended fiscal year.

           Afilias was formed on Monday, September 25, 2000; so it had no revenue during the last-ended fiscal year.

D9.  Full names and positions of (i) all directors, (ii) all officers, (iii) all relevant managers, and (iv) any persons or entities owning five percent or more of registry operator.

           Afilias currently has no officers. Each member of Afilias owns approximately 5.25% of the membership interests of Afilias.

There are other troubling aspects of the Afilias application, but these few illustrate that Afilias may be nothing more than a hastily thrown-together, thinly disguised attempt to intimidate ICANN and smaller competitors.   The application reveals only a shell.
