||Add only one new gtld and see what happens!
Again: Instead of adding 6-10 new gtlds, it might be
prudent to first add only one gtld and to see what happens.|
1. Why not just activate
the "old" .web, which already in 1996 was given to image online design, but still
has not been added to the A-root servers.
2. The pre-registrations through Core
concerning .web should not be added or only after the ones of image online and in
that case not through any round-robin method, as this method seems to me highly unserious,
creating a two class registration-service including an extremely expensive "premium-pre-registring"
service to "safely" register a domain name. This is worse than what we have right
3. Besides that, image online has a trademark on .web and I can imagine,
that this might cause serious legal problems.
4. Apart from that it would be kind
of strange to be discussing the trademark problems in ICANN and at the same time
infringe the .web trademark ...
5. The best solution seems to me to take over
the registrations already effected through image online design (the same way as it
happened with the .com registrations effected earlier by networksolutions) and then
to allow all the official registers of .com, .org and .net gTLDs to extend their
services to the new .web gTLD.
6.This would make new domain names available, solve
the legal .web problem and give an opportunity to learn how the internet reacts or
changes in case new gTLDs are added.
