To John O. Jeffrey, General Counsel and Secretary, ICANN, et al:
In part as an affiliate program for the adult entertainment industry,
this aspect of my business' foundation is internet based. If ICM's
application were granted and a .XXX sTLD were to be created, it would
negatively impact my business. Also it would put ICANN in the position
of creating an entity to impose regulations and policy for the adult
entertainment community - a situation that could easily stifle what is
now a robust adult entertainment internet presence.
I do not support the creation of a .XXX sTLD and believe that the ICANN
Board was well within its rights to deny ICM's application in the 2007
Board meeting in Lisbon.
It is imperative that ICANN consider the widespread opposition from the
adult entertainment community to a .XXX sTLD as it makes its decision.
For that reason, I support Option # 3 of the March 26, 2010 process
options submitted by ICANN for public comment.
It should be noted that my company's involvement in the adult
entertainment industry has been ongoing since 1997, and that we have,
and always will act responsibly. Of the adult domains that we maintain,
all have been registered as such, so blocking those sites as warranted
is easy to do.
There is no need to reply. However, please feel free to contact me if
you want further information, including a list of the adult domains that
we own and operate.
