Subject: JCCU support for .co-op TLD


As a supporter of a new .co-op top level domain, I agree with the ICANN staff review which concluded that proposal for .co-op is both technically and financially sound.  I commend ICANN staff for appropriately including .co-op among the proposed TLDs still under consideration and for noting the broad public support for .co-op and lack of criticism associated with this proposal. 

.co-op is truly a domain name that will make a difference to Internet users across the globe.  .co-op will fulfill unmet needs on the Internet, will open up a broad range of new domain names, will enhance competition in domain name registry services, and most importantly, will help consumers find the businesses they trust on the Internet.  Because the word co-op/coop is recognized across the globe to represent businesses that are owned and operated by their members, .co-op will make a strong new addition to existing TLDs.

To ensure that new TLDs fulfill unmet needs on the Internet, I urge ICANN to approve .co-op as the Special Purpose TLD that will truly make a difference on the Internet.

Cooperatively yours,
