‘.XXX’ Name Faces Fight

‘.XXX’ Name Faces Fight (AP)
Associated Press has a widely published story reporting on the opposition to the proposed .xxx TLD saying “Online pornographers and religious groups are in a rare alliance”. This alliance is calling for ICANN to reject .xxx. Mark Kernes, a board member of the Free Speech Coalition says “One of the criteria is that it (must) have general support among the industry it’s supposed to serve, and it does not”. Further, he says “I have not met one single webmaster or adult video producer that is in favour of `.xxx,’ and I’ve met a lot of them.” The Free Speech Coalition supports the creation of a TLD for children-friendly sites. “Religious groups worry that ‘.xxx’ would legitimize and expand the number of adults sites.”http://www.theage.com.au/articles/2007/03/24/1174597921741.html
