.xxx - the best way to stop censorship.

Think about it. If adult content was on it's own TLD, it's easy to block it for kids. No major isp is going to block it, because they'd lose 20% of their customers. And people that want porn will have the power to see it.

I'd rather have that than have the US gov't try to prosecute people.

And if ICANN enforces it, it would be worldwide. The KEY is that the registry MUST allow the current .com owners to get the same domains as .xxx, without the regisgtered tm bs. If you own a .net, you are second in line. If they don't, I can see lots of lawsuits.

I think if they change it, then the flod gatess should open up again, just like a new land grab.

if it is a whole ne w system, then fair trade practices would deem that as the only way to go.

If it's voluntary to put sites there I don't see them letting the .com owners get first pick. I mean a trademarked name sure, but freeporn.xxx should be up for grabs.

I understand people wanting their current domain.xxx but do all of you have your domain registered for every tld that is out there? Or do you just want to have first pick when it's a TLD you like?

I agree with you on that point, but that's only dealing with one issue. Censorship. That's also ASSUMING they still won't censor those domains.

When they start to suggest/enforce new regulations, new fees, new porn taxes and whatever the hell else they can think of to disrupt our industry, it's easy to see why this is worse than 2257.

I'm not worried that many if any isp's will block the domain. I'm worried about the entire community being segregated SOLELY for the purpose of making monitoring and regulating our industry easier.

I doubt they will give .com owners any priority unless they own the appropriate trademark. It will be too difficult for them to manage such transition.. ain't gonna happen IMHO.

You might not have ISP's block it, but think about all the colleges, companies, parents, and a thousand other organizations that would block it on the client side. Traffic would be cut in half.

yeah but you're forgetting about people who will still want to censor pornography because they think it's obscene...

xxx will do NOTHING to get the heat off.

Everyone is speaking as if the tld is going to launch as mandatory. It's not. It should open up like every other damn tld and first come first serve.

This is what a guy at ICM Registry said in an e-mail to me.

We will be expecting names to go on General Sale to members of the Community in the 4th Quarter of 2005.

Prior to that there will be a period whereby potential registrants that have Intellectual Property interests in specific names can come forward to register that interest in those names and such names will be equitably allocated and subject to a recognized dispute resolution policy , where more than one party makes a claim over a particular domain name.

I busted my ass branding a targetted .net. So I'm just fucked because someone else gets first dibs since they got .com? Ha, hell no.

As long as there is enforcement for all the sites using .net and .org (all the other ones other than porn that aren't using the tld the way it was meant).

Good point Ron...

Nothing can stop Gov in few years, from asking tons of annual fees to maintain your .xxx domain as a hidden tax...

Big guys will pay it anyway, so why they (the gov) shouldn't do that... Smaller guys will let their domains goes, up to grab from big guys who will be bale to pay the big fees....

How they handle this aspect of it is going to be a big deal. If they give out keyword.xxx just because someone has keyword.com it's going to be a shitstorm.

I agree with you Lens.....as long as I can own all the .xxx's to match the .com's I currently own I won't have a problem with it.

Plus if the gov't forces us to move to .xxx then they're acknowledging that we exist and have a right to publish our content on the web

I agree with all the above, this is gonna open a ton of lawsuits, and who knows maybe legally break the new .XXX owners...next thing you know Acacia will buy out this registrar and the .XXX will sue the .COM owners for trademark issues.

The only way this would work is to make it voluntary and make the .XXX a grabfest and not give .com owners entitlements.

I don't see any precedence for this with the other TLD's.

Exactly. Pussy is a commonly used word. It can't be trademarked. It should not be given to anyone before the tld is open to the public.
