Summary of Submission

The amendment, as it's written, is very problematic. Why would you allow **any government** to seize control of a domain name for **any reason**, especially when that includes bad actors as well who might want to take control of a site?

Apparently similar language was slipped into the .COM agreement 3 years ago, while we were still neck-deep in a pandemic. Bad timing to be seeking input on such a bad change.
