You are correct.  Afilias' attempt to hijack .web from IOD is nothing more than piracy of intellectual property.  Let us hope that ICANN will place the good of the internet over the good of 19 major corporations.  Let us also hope that ICANN hasn't already made a decision on .web, and will weigh each application on its own merit.

If ICANN does so, IOD will run the .web registry.  Can you imagine what will happen if Afilias/Network Solutions gets the registry?  I can see it now...all the existing .web names will be hoarded and sold at a later time!  Simply amazing that ICANN would even consider a bid by Afilias to run .web.
