Summary of Submission

I have read news articles indicating that you intend to "allow any government in the world to cancel, redirect, or transfer to their control applicable domain names."

This is absolutely unacceptable. This proposal is a threat to free speech, due process, the rule of law, human rights, and any number of other rights that must be preserved and to which the Internet is uniquely positioned to either protect or destroy.

I urge you to reconsider this proposal and strike this language from the current contract, as well as adopting a strict policy that this kind of language is not valid and will not be proposed again at any time in the future.
