Jan. 4, 2012- Commerce Department urges changes to domain name expansion

The suggestions seems to be to move forward, but slowly. Better than the alternative to push back the rollout dates. Sadly the .tld(anything) program continues to sandbag the progress of the IDN.IDN program.

Commerce Department urges changes to domain name expansion
By Brendan Sasso - 01/04/12 04:41 PM ET

Lawrence Strickling, the Commerce Department's assistant secretary for communications and information, urged the Internet Corporation Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to rethink its plan to allow for new domain-name endings in a letter on Tuesday. In meetings we have held with industry over the past weeks, we have learned that there is tremendous concern about specifics of the program that may lead to a number of unintended and unforeseen consequences and could jeopardize its success," Strickling, who heads Commerce's National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA), wrote in the letter to Stephen Crocker, chairman of ICANN's board of directors.

ICANN, a Calif.-based nonprofit group that manages the Web’s naming system, approved a plan in June to allow for new generic top-level domain names in addition to traditional domain endings such as “.com” or “.org.” Beginning on Jan. 12, organizations can apply for new addresses ending in almost any word or phrase, such as ".sport" or ".food." But an array of advertisers, businesses and nonprofits are worried the plan could force them to defensively buy up domains related to their brand. Strickling urged ICANN to take additional steps to ensure brand owners do not feel they have to buy domains they do not intend to use, but he did not specify any potential actions. The letter suggests that after the application period ends, ICANN should consider slowly phasing in the new domains.

LOL....this process has been underway for over 6 years and now the backseat drivers are showing up. At least there is no legal action underway (I am aware of) to try and postpone the January 12 date, hopefully once the horse is out of the barn we can get movement on IDN.IDN as well.
