Good morning,

Chubb Edwards is a leader in the Canadian electronic security and life safety 
market with an international history that dates back to 1818.  We have become 
aware of the plan to introduce new web extensions and wanted to share our 
reservations with you.

We believe that "closed generic" domains should not be permitted." The internet 
should be open and not subject to exclusivity as would be the case if Symantec 
were to be granted sole rights to the ".security" extension.  Security is a 
generic term and should not be associated with an individual entity to ensure a 
fair competitive environment.

As such, we feel that 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 their application.

Thank you.

Bruce Bowlby
