"Closed Domain" names shoudl NEVER happen
* We 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.
