Subject: $2,500,000 Offer to ICANN

Message:
 

 
  Dear ICANN,
Our Company would like to offer you $2,500,000 for the Rights to the .TEL, .PRO and .NOM TLDs. This offer is more money than all 47 applications put together! Why? It's simple.. We would own all of the URL's in these TLD's and will easily recoup our investment. Since we do not have any technical capabilities we would allow all of the other applicants the right to distribute them on an equal non discriminatory basis. We will follow any rules and procedures you suggest. Of course we will keep all of the single digit URLs and some of the generic names such as Bank, Sports, News, Health, Movies, Golf etc, as some of the current applicants propose.  Our offer is intended to illustrate that you are planning to hand over the keys to a business opportunity worth Multi-Millions of Dollars to a Private, For Profit Driven Company for the meager sum of $50,000!????  If ICANN is not interested in our proposal we will extend the offer to whoever they end up selecting. A combined $2,350,000 profit for the 3 companies selected. Heck we'll give them each $1,000,000. I guarantee none will accept because the lure of becomming authorized cybersquatters is too appealing and profitable. You can give them away for $50,000 or you can accept our offer of $2,500,000. It's up to you. (Should any of the applicants protest your awarding us the 3 TLDs for $2,500,000 we will personally refund their $50,000 application fee.)
