As the registered owner of several .NET domain names, I want to express my
objection to the

comments filed by the  Intellectual Property Constituency, here:

There is no foundation in any ICANN policy process for imposing new gTLD
“rights protections” on incumbent gTLDs without careful study and
deliberation -- after seeing how they work, or don’t, at new gTLDs.

It is fundamentally unfair to impose URS on .NET registrants. Individuals
who wish to acquire future domains under new gTLDs would be notified in
advance that they will be subject to URS. However, .NET domains have already
been acquired, often at considerable expense, with the understanding that
registration and use would only be subject to possible UDRP review.
