Quote Of The Week

"The key here is to "own" the extensions through trade-marking and fair use before ICANN does anything to claim the extensions itself. If this effort succeeds, I don't have to tell the Afternic community how much money there is to be made there. Specialized names with .shop or .travel, if made available to even half of all U.S. internet users, will be valuable properties."
