Yes, we DO own .travel
So create your own .travel/.xxx version. Who is stopping you? Question is ... -Do you have enough investment power? -Are you good enough to convince VCs? -What is your risk tolerance? -Do you have a team of professionals? -Can you afford to employ such high level professionals for a long period? -Do you have 200 million user accessibility power? -Do you have ISP support? -Do you have support from Internet backbone providers? -Do you have registrar/reseller support? -Do you have webmaster/business owner/end user support? New.net is a legitimate business with a subtantial amount of user accessibility base behind them covering millions of internet users and thousands of domains registered under their system. No one can have a monopoly power over them to jeopardize their business interests and their current business dealings with other registrars/resellers. Do you think registrars would prefer a Tralliance version of .travel OR New.net's version of .travel? Tralliance version is an absolute loser. How many .name/.kids.us domains have been sold so far? There is no point to argue, no one can shut New.net's business down. PERIOD. As a side note, New.net didn't introduce a clash. They introduced the "strings" that ICANN discarded last round.
