EmployMedia were granted the right to operate the .jobs registry on the
basis of their application to ICANN and granted a charter accordingly. If
that business model is not proving successful, then the registry must be
allowed to fail.
ICANN should not allow a TLD applicant to obtain a licence on the basis of
specific terms of reference; only to later allow that applicant to radically
change those terms of reference in order to increase the value of the
registry licence that they have been granted.
ICANN should also consider whether allowing numerous more job seeker sites
(and domains) to go online will actually add value to end users. I think it
will merely further clutter this space and add confusion to end users.
To grant this request would set a very bad precedent and I respectfully
submit that it should be rejected.
