Domain Registration - .security
Good morning, Chubb Edwards is a leader in the Canadian electronic security and life safety market with an international history that dates back to 1818. We have become aware of the plan to introduce new web extensions and wanted to share our reservations with you. We believe that "closed generic" domains should not be permitted." The internet should be open and not subject to exclusivity as would be the case if Symantec were to be granted sole rights to the ".security" extension. Security is a generic term and should not be associated with an individual entity to ensure a fair competitive environment. As such, we feel that 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 their application. Thank you. Sincerely, Bruce Bowlby Bruce Bowlby Marketing Manager Chubb Edwards Tel 905-206-8444 Fax 905-206-8430 bruce.bowlby@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx<mailto:bbowlby@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> www.chubbedwards.com<http://www.chubbedwards.com> This message may contain confidential and/or privileged information of UTC Climate, Controls & Security and its affiliated companies.
