To Whom It May Concern:

I am extremely concerned and dismayed by ICANN's intentions to greatly expand 
the availability of internet domain names without sufficient protection for 
brand owners.  Much more must be done to protect brand owners and avoid what 
would otherwise likely be a very substantial additional cost to brand owners, 
without real benefit to those brand owners.

My views are more clearly expressed in the attached.

I strongly urge ICANN to delay implementation of new gTLDs, to allow for more 
discussion and consensus about protecting the rights of brand owners.

Sincerely,

Thomas M. Blasey
