Adopt-a-TLD programme


Thomas Roessler responded to my previous entry on ICANN wrt to TLD.

Instead of being scared of possible failure, ICANN should think about how to deal with it. ICANN should be thinking about escrow solutions. ICANN should be thinking about how it can contribute to establishing a healthy and sufficiently large pool of operational registry businesses. And it should be thinking about how to help make sure that the registrations in any given TLD remain an asset in case of bankrupcy of a registry business, and not become a liability: Make sure that, when a registry fails, someone else has a business interest in picking up the remains.

Hear Hear! We need “adopt-a-TLD” programme for failed registries. :-)
