Business Constituency tries to plug holes in gTLD process: Applications for gTLD IDN

Applications for gTLD IDNs

"When it comes to the next billion users, many of them are going to be using languages and scripts other than Latin and English," DelBianco noted.

But so far there appears to be very little interest or public awareness of "gTLD IDNs" - Internet extensions that are in different languages that can also be applied for through the new gTLD program.

The Business Constituency urged the Board to "do everything possible to avoid disappointment by getting new TLDs in under-served linguistic communities", including giving incentives or discounts so applicants will roll out multiple versions of their top-level domain in multiple scripts.

Re: Business Constituency tries to plug holes in gTLD process: Applications for gTLD

Have you guys listened to the audiocast of the Biz constituency meeting ? At the end of the first part, at around 1:14:00, Phil Corwin mentions that the National Retail Association has just woke up and wants a pause of the new gTLD program. Apparently these guys are more powerful the the Advertising guys.

edit: oh it's been reported previously : thedomains.com/2011/10/24/national-retail-federation-asks-commerce-dept-to-delay-new-gtld-plan-but-its-pr-is-full-of-inaccuracies/

Retail would possibly like to close the internet all together if they could? http://investmentwatchblog.com/inter...book-electron/

Assume they are the most powerful thing on earth i don't see how they can do anything, this is much bigger then any one or few associations and just out of curiousity, on what grounds or what can anyone claim that will lead to suspension or delay of this program?

Remember, almost all businesses missed out of .com in the 90′s and still most don’t understand the importance some 15 + years later.
A few like Procter and Gamble did.
