I have just finished reading the .web proposal from Image online and Afilias. The neustar application is not yet on line.

I am impressed by IOD's application. In particular they seem to have thoroughly thought out the potential for trademark disputes.

Afilias do say that they will follow all laws that are applicable, which is a good thing.

IOD on the other hand actually spell out what they will do. I particularly like the "one - for - one" policy whereby if someone has registered a trademake (perhaps unknowingly, perhaps unwittingly) then IOD will allow them to swap their .web for a less abrasive choice thus avoiding the need to refer to the law in many cases.

In this way, IOD have shown that they are not only capable of running .web - but also willing to run it properly and fairly.

IOD get my vote.
