US Dept Of Commerce: Us Govt Doesn’t Agree With Postal Service Objections To .Mail

In a letter sent to ICANN by The US Commerce Department’s Lawrence Strickling to Steve Crocker, Commerce made it clear that the US Government was not backing the United States Postal Service (USPS) objections to the new gTLD applications for .Mail Last week we told you that the USPS filed a Legal Rights Objection with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIP O) against all seven applications for the new gTLD .Mail. The applicants for the new gTLD .Mail include Google, Amazon, and Donuts, Afilias and 1&1 Mail & Media GmbH, which owns 1 & 1 hosting which is also a domain name registrar and also owns the domain name Mail.com and Web.de In the letter Mr. Strickling says the objections are “not supported by the coordinated view of the United States Government.” So the USPS is out on their own on this one.
