Firm sought to aid TLD's entry into US

LONDON: It sounds like a throwback to dot-com bubbles gone by, but

a British internet company is looking to hire an American PR firm to

break into the US market.

Thomas Goolnick, head of marketing for TLD Networks, said his company is

New York, and has just opened offices in France and Italy.
