The ongoing battle for the dot .Music gTLD, one of the most prestigious keywords in the new Internet namespace, has garnered an important victory for founder Constantine Roussos‘s team effort, to build a Community-led dot .Music.

The dot .Music founder announced that RIAA, the Recording Industry Association of America, is throwing its support behind his community application for the .music top-level domain.

In a letter sent to ICANN, RIAA general counsel Steven M. Marks stated the industry group now supports the DotMusic Ltd. application due to its commitment to implement safeguards against online copyright infringement.

This is an important victory but not the end of the battle, as ICANN has yet to decide on the gTLD’s allocation.

In an article on Bloomberg, Constantine Roussos, stated that his application’s goal is to unify the music community.

“We’ve assembled the biggest coalition in the history of music. Our approach is all inclusive, no discrimination, and we want to launch it in stages so organizations can have priority and prevent cybersquatting, and then community members can register.”

DotMusic Ltd. is represented by the established law firm, ESQWire; Jason B. Schaeffer, attorney with the firm, broke the news earlier today.
