    ICANN will require ALL of the current .WEB customers to drop any claims to their names.

    ICANN will then spend years letting the trademark people move to the head of the line.

    Why does IOD think a partnership with ICANN is good for .WEB owners ?

    Their most recent paper reflects that. In that they are simply trying to work within the established communities to foster a single root authoritative public root for the domain name system.

    Image Online Design is not trying to parter with anyone. THEY are saying we have registry that has proven to be robust, and one that does have community support. THEREFORE, we intend to continue to foster support, and seek solutions within the working groups, and yes, ICANN.

    It's all about consensus and that is the way it should be. I would like to think ICANN feels the same way.

    This doesn't mean that IOD is against anyone else (in my opinion). That is where this story is getting lost. They are for building a DNS that will be accepted by the public, for if the public does not have confidence in our DNS, they will not seek to use it for personal use, business, etc. That is why any talk of replacing IOD's dot web registry with someone elses is not good policy (the dot biz situation proves that--especially with all the plug-ins floating out there)....Just as it would not be good policy (in my opinion) for IOD to suggest that the DNS handled under a "multiple authority" type scenario.

    I went long, but I hope you got my point. IOD is not partnering with anyone, they are not against anyone. They simply wished to clarify where they stand in relation to how the DNS should operate. That is responsible, and sound policy. And obviously there is almost 6 years of experience to back that paper up. They know what they are talking about!!!
