The Scottish Parliament's Public Petitions Committee today formally endorsed the dotSCOT campaign, after receiving assurances from the Government that it was doing all it could to help ensure an application could be submitted to ICANN.
The unanimous vote cast by the Committee means that our campaign now has cross-party support - a crucial step in demonstrating to ICANN a widespread desire across Scotland and its diaspora for a Scottish domain.
The dotSCOT team are delighted that both Parliament and Government have been so supportive of our campaign. Less than nine months after we started collecting signatures to submit the petition, we are now well on the way to submitting an application to ICANN - no small feat.
