Re: ICANN adopted board resolution: gTLD timetable

What is the 4 Month delay for? Most people have been waiting years, this is just another wait. The only thing people are going to learn from the communications campaign is be even more bloody patient.

That seems to be what Verisign expects. See this post: verisign-3rd-quarter-earnings-call-timing-of-idns.html

If I understand correctly, it will cost Verisign about $183,000 per script when they apply for .com-in-idn and .net-in-idn. So the next question is: which scripts/alphabets will they apply for in the first round?

If they don't apply that, they can't sell it.

Probably, but like most of the other muppets out there, you are probably expecting to register something of value in May 2012.

The truth is you will get zilch because the IDN.com's are going to carry the right on any future issues, so what you need to register needs to be registered now, and even then you are late to the party.

Anyone that seriously believes that $183,000 is going to be a serious impediment to Verisign in all but minority scripts needs their head examining.

Right, but as the owner of a few nice Georgian and Armenian dot coms, I'm particularly interested in the fate of minor scripts.

I assume that Verisign won't hesitate to apply for .com in Cyrillic and Chinese. But where will they draw the line?

Probably at what they will envisage will make a profit ......

If a script only 10K to 20K regges or less currently, could well be borderline, at least in the short-term But it all depends on:

a) How much VeriSign charge for each extension (I am presuming full reg price), and
b) How much they think sales will accelerate once IDN.IDN happens.

Hopefully the wisdom inside VeriSign says current reg numbers are minimal compared with the potential for more regges once the fanfare of IDN.IDN happens.

They certainly aren't going to launch with 30 or more extensions to start .... would make it look like the cat got the cream ;-)

Re: ICANN adopted board resolution: gTLD timetable

It is a question of securing various script combinations. Not applying shows disinterest which is never good when protecting IP rights.

They will argue that haven't a chance of making a return on many of the extension they are registering but simply doing it for the greater good. If they get in early they will save millions on lawyer fees.

Re: ICANN adopted board resolution: gTLD timetable

Someone posted earlier that there is a subsidy VeriSign gets for enabling minor scripts.

@RD -[Not applying shows disinterest which is never good when protecting IP rights.]

They have no IP rights. They are a supplier, a vendor who is a monopoly hence the risk is still there. For all you know Afilias can get the .com too which we hope they don't.

Re: ICANN adopted board resolution: gTLD timetable

I can see certain governments only be too happy to either write a cheque to get their script version of .com out there, or maybe convince the GAC to lean on ICANN for discounts.

It's a pretty hefty fucking fee for doing sweet bugger-all.

Honestly, you could just not make up the drivel some people come out with.
