To whom it may concern:


SIAC has reported the following regarding "closed generic" domains.

"Three companies have applied to ICANN to operate ".security". Symantec
is one of those companies and has requested to operate this new domain
as a closed domain. This means the domain will be operated by a
participant exclusively for its own benefit.
If a customer were to search for "security" via a web-based search
engine, the results would only include those ".security" domains that
relate to Symantec products and services. Security and alarm companies
would not appear, thus eliminating this important marketing channel and
allowing the domain to be administered by a company with little to no
interest in addressing the needs of the residential and commercial
security and alarm industry."


This would not be beneficial to our alarm industry.  Closed generic
domains would greatly reduce the choices for the consumer and reduce
growth in the industry.  


We do believe it is important to keep these domain names open for full
industry participation.
