Att: Dr. David Crocker, Chairman of the Board Mr. Fadi Chehade, President & CEO Mr. Cherine Chalaby, Chair of the New gTLD Committee Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) 12025 Waterfront Drive, Suite 300 Los Angeles, CA 90094 We support an internet support an Internet that is open and focused and has room for the security and alarm industry. Generic words cannot and should not be owned for the exclusive use of one company. A closed generic domain is not in the public interest. If ICANN permits any company to possess a closed domain including Symantec (a computer company) to use .security then the security and alarm industry could be lost. Closed use of .security is not similar to the way .com, .net and .org are used on the Internet daily. Therefore, we believe a closed generic application for .security is anticompetitive and we request that ICANN require applicants for closed generic TLDs to either open the TLD or withdraw for a full refund.
