Esther Dyson On New Top-Level Domains: “There Are Huge Trademark Issues” | TechCrunch: "Esther Dyson, who was the founding chairwoman of ICANN (among other things) doesn’t like the new top-level domains ... approved by ICANN. ... The thing is, we are not running out of domains. This is a “way for registries and registrars to make money,” says Dyson. She also points out that “there are huge trademark issues. I just think it is offensive. If I own a trademark, now I have to go register it on 2,800 domains. It will create a lot of litigation.”" (go to link above if video does not show or play)

So ICANN did not listen to its founding chairwoman, and sold out the public interest to hucksters!
