"Once gTLDs hit the Internet it's certain that brands using the current .com domain will run the risk of being perceived as 'lower' than those brands that have their own TLDs."

Probably irrelevant. Generics are not Brands. And since when were we ever in direct competition with IBM or Nike?

Let's face it if you know your brand and want to visit the manufacturers homepage then dot Brand is for you. The last time I wanted to do that was to get clarification on the specification of my Skoda. Did I buy anything directly from there? No, of course I bloody didn't. They don't sell anything directly anyway.
