think_nix writes “A letter to ICANN (PDF) from Victoria Sheckler, Deputy General Counsel for the RIAA, demands modifications to the future implementation of the .music gTLD, threatening to ‘escalate the issue’ if certain concerns about ‘wide scale copyright and trademark infringement’ are not addressed by ICANN in compliance with the RIAA. ‘Under the current proposed standard, we fear that we will have no realistic ability to object if a pirate chooses to hijack a music themed gTLD to enable wide scale copyright infringement of our works,’ Sheckler said.”
