Allowing governments the ability to arbitrarily take over any domain name is bad policy. Dictatorial governments could easily take over a domain that contains negative information simply to thwart dissemination of facts that shine a bad light on that government. The policy would set a poor precedent and be open to abuse by fascist governments.

Summary of Submission

Allowing governments to take over a domain is a bad policy, ripe for abuse by dictators.
