    While I am not necessarily a proponent of new.net, I have to say that you are incorrect. New.net domains are, in fact, SLDs and not 3lds. They have set it up so that those who do not wish to use the plug-in or do not subscribe to those ISPs who resolve their TLDs can still see those sites by appending .new.net. It does not in any fashion change the fact that those who "point" to their TLD servers via a participating ISP do not need to append .new.net. They have simply added a convenient method for resolution.

    Not to put too fine a point on it, but there is a strong possibility that you're flat wrong about this guy getting screwed out of chandelier.shop if and when ICANN gets around to creating that tld in the ICANN root.

    The owner of chandelier.shop has invested time and money in an e-commerce business with national reach. Presumably, he has created goodwill in the "chandelier.shop" name, which has arguably acquired secondary meaning in the marketplace. Assuming "chandelier.shop" is not "merely descriptive," the proprietor of chandelier.shop could very well acquire a registered trademark in the "chandelier.shop" name. Which means that, if and when ICANN ever gets around to approving a .shop tld, the current proprietor of chandelier.shop should be able to sue to protect his trademark from a competing business that managed to register the name through ICANN.

    Further, ironically, assuming that UDRP remains largely unchanged, the proprietor of chandelier.shop may be able, by using the UDRP process, to avoid the hassle of trademark litigation and wrest control of the name from whomever beats him to the registration punch.

    Further still, and again ironically, if ICANN decides to stick with some iteration of a "sunrise" scheme, the proprietor of chandelier.shop should be able to nab the ICANN-root name pursuant to the sunrise scheme by virtue of his trademark in chandelier.shop.

    Bottom line-- I don't see how the proprietor of chandelier.shop is being duped by new.net nor how his registration of chandelier.shop is a waste of money.
