Subject: The money making takes priority?

Message:
 

 
The big registrars are set to make 10s of millions of USD in the
space of a few days. They will give assurances that everything will work OK (this will come from their management teams) but at the end of the day their over-riding concern is to make money for their share holders and the new TLDs are a license to print money. They don't really care if the whole introduction is chaotic. I don't see how ICAAN can be strong enough to stand up to them and their lobby.
