Yes but all new domains are up against the problem of .com - that's why the new domains really did not do so well. Domain registrations tend to move in this order:
The above have been failures for different reasons - but at least they were not woolly, with 100% unspecific idealogy. They did, at least, make a good attempt at communicating the idea behind each suffix in their actual suffix.
.com - .cctld - .net - .org - .info/.biz
True but the .eu gTLD is meant to have pan- European appeal.
They also had global appeal (albeit in English), which .EU does not have.
Which language will .EU be in?
Is every country happy with the choice?
EU law now apparently takes precedence over national state law in the EU. All EU directives have to be enacted in state law within 9 months or so.
There may be EU directives, but as any educated person will know, each EU country functions on its own laws and within its own jurisdictions, largely outside EU involvement.
It will take at least that long to see if it will be meaningless. That's why it is unwise to write it off so early. Though with the number of bottom feeders and PPC parasites that it will attract, it will be interesting to see how EUrid will police the gTLD.
let alone an meaningless internet suffix that no-one will care about in less than 2 years time.
