RE: Employ Media's TLD Charter Amendment

Dear Chairman Dengate Thrush and Members of the Board:

I am writing on behalf of Vipe Inc, to urge you to reject Employ Media's
request for authority to permit second level registration of strings that do
not correspond to an employer's name in the .jobs sponsored top level
domain. My
organization would be directly and adversely affected by this request and
therefore opposes the unilateral expansion of the .jobs charter to encompass
regional and industry-specific second-level registrations. 

The separate and distinct communities of employers, staffing agencies, third
party recruiters, job boards, and even career services are now threatened by
the proposed expansion of the .jobs top level domain (TLD). The charter
holder is attempting to extend the application of the TLD from its approved
community--direct employers--into the online employment services community
by introducing geocentric (i.e., Atlanta.jobs, NewYork.jobs, Athens.jobs)
and occupation specific (i..e, nurse.jobs, salesperson.jobs,
systemsanalyst.jobs) web sites. It now has a proposal to implement this plan
before the governing board of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names &
Numbers (ICANN).

Further, this proposal establishes an environment in which trademarked names
can be used by the highest bidder to the detriment of corporate America.

This proposal violates both the spirit and the letter of the charter
holder's contract with ICANN. No less important, it will grievously harm all
employers everywhere and therefore my organization by confusing job seekers
and diluting our branding.
