Hello, I am writing regarding the proposed rules for applying the uniform
rapid suspension system to .net domains as part of the upcoming renewal of
the .net agreement. It is my opinion that organizations like the IPC would
abuse any power given to them in this fashion. Tools such as the DMCA have
been overused and abused to enforce draconian copyright rules when it is
arguable that no copyright was infringed, such as the case with fair use and
other legitimate exemptions. I am afraid that if the IPC were given the
power to suspend domains at will, they would do so without any due process,
which is not fair to legitimate domains that could be negatively affected by
such an act. Illegitimate sites that participate in copyright infringement
can simply switch to a new domain quickly as well, which would not
significantly hinder their operations.
Please leave copyright enforcement to the proper agencies that are
responsible for enforcing such laws, so that everyone involved is given
proper due process that is afforded to them.
Thank you for your time.
