[ga] Analysis of Atlantic Root .BIZ Registrations to Date
I've heard discussion -- on this list, at ICANN meetings, and elsewhere --
on the subject of a possible conflict in the DNS root between the NeuLevel
.BIZ (which the ICANN Board of Directors selected in its November 16, 2000
Board Meeting; see <http://www.neulevel.com>) and an existing .BIZ TLD
operated by the Atlantic Root Network (<http://www.biztld.net>).
I've heard much discussion about the possible and theoretical problems
raised by such conflicts, but there seemed to me significant empirical
questions here. For example, I wondered: Just how many registrations are in
the Atlantic Root Network's .BIZ? When were those registrations made?
Accordingly, I have set out to answer these questions and others using data
freely available over the Internet. My work in progress is posted at
<http://cyber.law.harvard.edu/people/edelman/dotbiz>. I look forward to
feedback from others interested in these questions, and to continued
discussion on the subject.
