Advantages for early participants

The owners of new TLDs and IDNs in Unifiedroot's will have a huge advantage as they will be able to develop and start using their own domain name space immediately. They will have an opportunity to be recognized as leaders within their industry sector and community.

The significant advantage for Unifiedroot TLD, IDN and SLD owners is that by using their TLDs, IDNs and SLDs, they will be taking important steps toward establishing their Intellectual Property rights  in those TLDs, IDNs and SLDs.

A basic premise of Intellectual Property law is that actual use creates rights . Building out content and attracting traffic to a TLD, IDN or SLD will strengthen one's claim to its Intellectual Property rights.

New and exciting revenue streams  can be realized as TLD and IDN owners can sell second-level domains (SLDs), develop new applications and services based from their new domains, and create global awareness about their brand.

TLD owners will be able to govern and set policy over their namespace, in essence to control the use and development of their TLD so as to ensure the integrity of their namespace and protect the interests of their customers and members.
