"closed generic" domains should not be permitted.":

*       We support an Internet that is open and focused and has room for the
security and alarm industry. 
*       Generic words cannot and should not be owned for the exclusive use
of one company. 
*       A closed generic domain is not in the public interest. 
*       If ICANN permits any company to possess a "closed domain" -
including Symantec (a computer company) to use ".security" then the security
and alarm industry could be lost. 
*       Closed use of ".security" is not similar to the way ".com," ".net"
and ".org" are used on the Internet daily. 
*       Therefore, we believe a closed generic application for ".security"
is anticompetitive and we request that ICANN require applicants for closed
generic TLDs to either open the TLD or withdraw for a full refund.
