Should be easy to win the rights to .tv when you're name-checked in the contract's tech reqs – right, Afilias?

Re: Questionable value for money?

People generally don't choose whether to follow a link based on its TLD, but when they're selecting the domain they're going to use for their project or organization, they try to get a memorable one. We all do this when setting up our own domain names--we want something easy to remember, relevant to the service, easy to type, etc. .tv is popular for doing that for video services, and often because a lot of .coms are taken by squatters. The people using the TLD would care if they knew, and given that .tv accounts for a healthy chunk of Tuvalu's GDP, their population should also care.
