To whom this may concern,


Am here to register my opposition to the imposition of URS on .NET through
its registry contract renewal base on the following grounds:


URS details are in flux. While untested, the URS clearly provides
registrants with fewer rights than the UDRP. 
- 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. 
- This is a big deal: .NET is the third-largest TLD after .COM and .DE, with
nearly 14 million registrations. 

- It's 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. 

- If trademark interest groups can get the URS imposed on .NET now, and .COM
next year through its contract renewal, then they are likely to scuttle the
ICANN-planned UDRP reform process (the only real prospect for balanced and
comprehensive UDRP reform). 


Hoping for your kind consideration and 




Dee Tan, Giovanni P.
