ICANN Working group urges not to rush into a second round of new gTLDs

A "club is a club": sports clubs, fan clubs, night clubs to use a domain name ending in ".club".
The Intellectual Property Constituency (IPC) urges ICANN not to go too fast launching Round 2 of the ICANN new gTLD program. Expect applicants from Round one to do the same :-)

Extract: "However, faced with this barrage, ChehadĂ© sought to calm any fears, stating: “Any notion that the ICANN staff is going to start a new gTLD phase in the middle of the night is ridiculous - we can barely change the coffee in our machines without having a public comment period. So it’s ridiculous to even think that we will start anything of this magnitude without your involvement. The reality is that nothing will happen without all of us being involved.".
