      Forget the hype and get a clue you whiner...

A paragraph from Marc Brittan's Post,

I was well aware that there was a business risk with my early 1996 investments in .web. I was confident, however, that IOD's approach to managing and promoting this TLD reduced the risk to an acceptable level. At the time, IOD was already offering its service in the alternate root, as well as being on a good path towards acceptance in the default IANA root. After four years of offering .web service, and taking registrations, IOD's position and claim have only been strengthened. It would be mean-spirited, and an act of bad faith to not allow IOD to be the .web registry for ICANN.

These are registrations and he has owned them since 1996. What part of "first and prior use" don't you understand. People with vision ansd innovation in their blood created .Web and now because Afilias,CORE,Neustar know it so marketable and a great idea they seek to have it for their own.
What a bunch of BS!!

If we have to go to Court so be it!
