Good initiative! I would like to take the opportiniuty to tell the top of policitis that internetis deviating sharply in a non-favourable situations whereby newcomers are a) sured of the market by brands; brands, after finanally having understood internet, sue potential new entrances as soos as fast as far awat, see ICIA.fr (eldest 8 caviar companies of the world) vs. new entrants as maisoncaviar.com (and Zwygler Kaviar. MaisonCaviar.com was refused, it would be too close to caviar-volga.com. Wipo.org and ICANN doe not apply UDRP; Icann simply non-anserws mai; and believes wipo (the lobby of the brands) is always right. Each year ICANNN announces new 300-400 domain names for the coming year. But practice one new comes out per yer (last one: ' XXX = standing for porn, so people could find porn sites' really concisteny wiyh overall policitics' aim to combat childrens porno). And in the launching, more and more restrictions are built for a little invdviduel or an little organisation to register. Best regards, Ir J Philippe Blankert info@AlternativeRootZone.org 24 May 2011
