Subject: competition: after all, that IS one of ICANN's objectives

Message:
 

 
        From icann.org:
"As a non-profit, private-sector corporation, ICANN is dedicated to preserving the operational stability of the Internet; to promoting competition..."


From IOD's application:      
".Web will be a direct competitor to .com and open for all markets and uses by Internet users. This will greatly serve the community as the availability of .com names is greatly reduced due to over registration. Currently available TLDs such as .com, .net and .org are perceived as U.S. centric and do not meet the need for a TLD that is free from geographic and functional associations; a need that .Web directly addresses.
