Here we are speaking about > "monopoly for > monopoly". I'm not mixing these things. From my perspective there's no difference. I'm looking at non-core services that the NCC provide which could and should be offered by others, not by the NCC. DNS monitoring in any form (except for the NCC's internal operations) is such a service IMO. The de facto monopoly in DNS monitoring that the NCC enjoys is regrettable. The fact the NCC is in this business distorts the market and has deterred others, including NCC members, from entering that market. What worries me is an official complaint to the competition authorities which results in them reviewing every aspect of the NCC operations, introducing regulation because it's a monopoly, etc, etc. > Speaking for .cz I would very much doubt that we would buy such > commercial DNS monitoring if it wasn't from RIPE NCC. We would rather > build some platform ourselves and offer it to other TLD operators (on > CENTR, OARSI or whatever grounds). I think that proves my point. There would be more diversity and competition in DNS monitoring services in the marketplace (such as it is) if the NCC would leave it alone to develop naturally.
