Dear Sirs,
IFPI Sweden strongly encourages ICANN to accept the main points of the new gTLD 
Safeguard Advice from ICANN's Governmental Accountability Committee (GAC).

IFPI Sweden represents the recording industry in Sweden and our members 
represent 90% of the total music market in Sweden.

In order for the program to achieve its goals of expanding competition and 
enhancing consumer choice, we consider it of great importance that ICANN s 
welcome the new gTLD Safeguard Advice. We also strongly commend the GAC's list 
of Safeguards Applicable to all New gTLDs because this would reduce the risk 
abusive registrations which is very important for us.

Safeguards are very important for gTLDs at higher risk of abuse that harms 
consumers or the rights of others. This notably includes applications targeted 
at sectors dependent on copyright protection, which have consistently 
experienced high levels of online infringement, meaningful steps to anticipate 
and manage these risks should be mandatory. Therefore, even if not required for 
all new gTLDs, the GAC's six basic safeguards should be mandated for those 
listed as "sensitive strings" within the GAC advice.

Yours faithfully

Magnus Martensson
Senior Legal Adviser
IFPI Sweden
