How about a slightly revised version of #6 as follows?:
"Strings must not be contrary to legal norms relating to morality
and public order to the extent regulated and within the limits of
enforceable principles of international law. Examples of these
principles include but are not limited to the Paris Convention regarding
trademarks and principles from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights
and the International Covenant on Civil and Political rights such as
freedom of expression rights."
Please take this as a legitimate question, it is intended in good faith.
Are we referring to the legal norms relating to morality in the
broadcast sense, the publication sense or the private access sense? (I
mention three variations knowing that there are other forms as well).
Even within these three categories, there are differing standards
applied - what gets printed in a book is different than what gets
printed in a newspaper. What the FCC permits over a television broadcast
is much different that what they permit over pay-per-view.
Which standards do we expect will be applied in terms of TLD strings?
