      In my opinion, IOD is receiving unfair competition in its bid to gain the .WEB TLD. A large consortium headed by Network Solutions and other major registrars is trying to control what may be the two most powerful TLD's, .COM and .WEB. ICANN should have an objective of spreading the control over TLD's to as many different qualified  registrars as possible. It becomes monopolistic when smaller applicants are shut out to the benefit of the already larger ones who control other TLD's. IOD has had four years of successful registration and maintenance of .WEB names. They have paid their dues and played by the rules. It would be unconscienceable to deny IOD at this time after dragging it along for so long.
