Letter Urges ICANN to Implement New TLDs Without Further Delay

An open letter signed by various members of the domain name industry, including heads of some of the top domain name registries and registrars, was sent today to ICANN CEO and Board of Directors urging them to direct their staff to implement the introduction of new Top-Level Domains (TLDs) without further delay. “The time to act is now,” says the letter for “many reason” including: Consumer Demand; Safety Considerations; Internet Stability; Innovation; ICANN’s own credibility

Since ICANN’s approval last year to relax its rules for the introduction of new Top-Level Domains, implementation plan has suffered a number of delays due to opposition from various groups including trademark owners and the US Department of Commerce.
