Public comment by eco e.V. "Names and Numbers" forum
To whom it may concern, please find attached our independent study as an additional source of information with regards to the deployment of new gTLD name stings. eco Verband der deutschen Internetwirtschaft e.V. is one of the leading Internet Industry Associations, with a highly diverse membership of some 700 member organizations originating from over 60 countries worldwide. These include ISPs, Registries, Registrars and new gTLD applicants. eco’s division dealing with topics related to the domain industry, the eco Names and Numbers Forum, has learned of the study prepared by Interisle Consulting Group concerning the deployment of new public gTLD labels and expressed an interest in its content. With the attached analysis, we would like to provide another source of information on the problems or the lack thereof that might go along with the introduction of new gTLDs. We want to offer information from an ISP perspective and not provide a recommendation on what to do with the results. However, we thought it would be useful to have more data available when determining how to proceed. Respectfully submitted, Klaus Landefeld MoB Infrastructure and Networks eco Verband der deutschen Internetwirtschaft e.V.
