Subject: About TLDs intended for Childrens applications (as .KIDS): Comments and Recommendations on Proposals

Message:
 

         To ICANN Board and Staff:

In the past I submited my comments about several potential gTLDs strings as .KIDS (and other ones).

Now I want to comment in general about the proposals for TLDs oriented to Childrens as .KIDS):

1.  None applications for .KIDS warrants all the standards of security that a Childrens TLD zone needs to have in order that Childrens around the world be safe from predators, pornography, childrens traders, etc.
To be in conversations or negociations with different companies or organizations that will rate content, etc, doesn't means that there is any compromise (or contract between such organizations and applicants) from them to work for a better .KIDS TLD zone.

2.  None applicants are able to "prevent" crime against the childrens on the Internet neither inside a .KIDS (or TLDs oriented for Childrens) zone.


3.  None applications demonstrates a real compromise with the Childrens around the world.  The yearly fees proposed cannot be afforded for Childrens living in the third world or must known as  Development Countries or SubDeveloped Countries.

4.  None applications demonstrates that the TLD they want to manage will be in service of the integral development and growth of the Childrens around the world. 

5.  Some applications claims that they have contacted several experts and organizations in order to support their applications.  However, I don't see anywhere the names of UNICEF neither UNESCO. Both are two United Nations agencies and practically authorities in the subject of Childrens and Education.

For all the reasons above I recommend to the ICANN Board and staff that the creation of TLDs as .KIDS or any other TLD oriented for .KIDS might not be created yet, until such TLDs zones meets all the requirements that will made such TLDs zone safe, educational that helps the Childrens to develop intellectually, spirtually, morally, ethically; enjoyable and works in service for and by the Childrens around the World
