Subject: answer to cfonb objection


  Netbay, the applicant to be the registry for the .FIN domain, and its shareholders respond to the objection by Mr. J. Bonnardin of CFONB:

- In its application, AMB clearly states that it is acting as a “starter” for the .FIN domain. AMB will not be the association that will establish the conditions and the rules under which second level names will be registered in .FIN.
- AMB realized that the extremely short time frame for the preparation of applications for new top level domains precluded the immediate creation of a globally representative sponsoring organization.
- AMB will act as initial sponsoring organization in accordance with its application, and, as indicated in its application, it will take steps promptly to contribute to the establishment of the .FIN Sponsoring Organization, as a globally representative organization that will represent equitably all the components of the financial sector (e.g., by type of business and geographically).
- AMB strongly favors a situation in which professional organizations, such as SWIFT  (for banks) and  other organizations (for insurance companies and other components of the financial world), would participate actively in the foundation and the management of the Financial Internet Domain Association.
- Netbay and AMB have cooperated fully in the preparation of the application, and believe that it represents the most effective way to achieve promptly the much needed top level domain devoted exclusively to the needs of the global finance industry.
