Subject: ICANN, Big Double Standards

Message:
 

 
        Stuart Lynn says:
   
      "New.net argues that "the market" should determine the composition and structure of the DNS. Anyone, the argument goes, should be allowed to create a new TLD it will be successful only if it gains market acceptance. And if it does gain acceptance (according to some unspecified criteria), ICANN should be obligated to enter the new TLD into the authoritative root. This, New.net proposes, is the market-driven solution to what it sees as the artificial shortage of TLDs. This argument rests on two critical assumptions, the first of which is false and the second unproven."

So where is ICANN's "SPECIFIED CRITERIA" for new TLD applicants?  Double standards here, and there, and everywhere.

I wonder which TLD Stuart Lynn will control once his term with ICANN is finished?
