European Broadcasting Union bids to manage .radio domain

The European Broadcasting Union is aiming to create a world-wide radio community, from Internet radio and broadcasters to chip and software suppliers, by managing the top level domain name .radio

Under the proposal, backed by the International Amateur Radio Union (IARU), registration will be available via the EBU to all eligible radio representative organizations and broadcasters, Internet radios, radio amateurs, radio professionals and their respective representative organizations, as well as companies providing radio-specific products and services.
"The IARU believes that the .radio proposal submitted by the EBU provides a unique opportunity to standardize radio domain names on the internet. The use of a specific global online name such as .radio can help create a unique space worldwide, a place where the global radio community can gather," said IARU president Timothy Ellam in a letter to the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN),
The IARU has been the watchdog and voice of the world Amateur Radio community since 1925 with a 160 strong membership from many different countries and territories.
EBU director general Ingrid Deltenre welcomed the IARU's expression of confidence: "The EBU believes its application matches ICANN's exacting criteria and best serves the collective interests of the global radio community. These kinds of comments confirm that belief." The EBU has also launched an application for the TLD .eurovision, which builds on the existing Eurovision brand.
The formal period for public comment has been extended to 26 September 2012 – an additional 45 days – to meet the demand of individuals and organizations. Comments received by 26 September will be forwarded to the evaluation panels to review and consider as part of their evaluations. The Application Comment forum and the Program Feedback forum will remain open throughout the evaluation process.
