Closed generic domains are wrong

"Closed generic" domains should not be permitted." 


We support an Internet that is open and focused and has room for any
industry, including security, alarm, and automation.

*       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.

Thank you,
