Book publishers blast Amazon's plan to control domain names
Two industry groups argue that the retailer's plan to control several generic top-level domains, including .book, .author, and .read, would be anti-competitive.
In all, Amazon has applied for control of 76 gTLDs, but 30 of them are contested and might not end up in its control. Google, which has applied for 101 gTLDs, seeks 23 of the same address strings as Amazon.
