Subject: vote for IOD - see interview Dyson - our request trademark NSI


As we read this article (it's in german) and saw all comments in this open discussion forum about "Monopoly Afilias" - "right for pioneers" - role of "Mr.Stubbs" aso...we are not really sure about a "fair and neutral" decision from ICANN'S side.      
Ether Dyson, President from ICANN said in this interview (22.10.2000 -magazine vivian), that "ICANN is waste and not democratic".
Maybe she knows better what happend inside ICANN.
We are Trademarkholders in europe, and therefore we registered our names through IOD. We still believe that ICANN find a fair choice for new TLDS.

A lawcourt in Frankfurt decided (AZ. 6 U 81/99 case -Internetmagazin 11/2000 - page 14), that "first come - first serve" are the rules for trademarks.
IOD were first, not others - therefore they have to serve dot.web.

As we are new in business, we had in the past no chance to register our trademarks ( - also preregistration was done - - look at - there seems to be no free name under aso..what happend under - no preregistration?).

ICANN - be fair and give the pioneers a chance - we vote for the approved solution from IOD

mail from NSI - our request trademark

Thank you for contacting Network Solutions.

The expiration date does not necessarily indicate that the domain name
will become available at that time.  Special circumstances could be
associated with the domain name which would extend the expiration date
indefinitely, however you may continue on checking our Whois-Database.

Best regards,
