IP Justice opposes this illegitimate attempt by ICANN staff to further
circumvent proper policy development processes in the creation and imposition
of new gTLD policy. In addition to the inappropriate process utilized, the
policy itself will chill freedom of expression as domain names will be quickly
suspended without any fair opportunity for consumers to defend their lawful
rights to use their domain names.
Particularly at this critical time when the world is watching ICANN to see if
it has begun to fix its accountability crisis, this illegitimate imposition of
a dangerous policy on the world is extremely disturbing.
