New gTLD Comment Period Closes

Michele Neylon

Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has been holding a public comment period on the second draft of the new generic Top-Level Domains (gTLD) handbook. This period was due to close yesterday.

Prior to yesterday afternoon there was a healthy number of comments, but in the past 24 hours a significant number of new comments have been submitted.

The tone and content of the comments vary considerably.

While some commentators are not overly enamoured with some of the concepts being pushed around, the general consensus would appear to be in favour of new TLDs.

That being said, the intellectual property contingent have quite a large number of reservations and want various safeguards and concessions to be made in order to make the process more palatable to them.
