Adult industry remains "deeply concerned" about .XXX application

(David Goldstein)
The adult industry remains concerned about the introduction of the .XXX Top Level Domain and in particular, the ICM Registry application. In a letter to ICANN, the Free Speech Coalition say they remain "deeply concerned about the application by ICM Registry (ICM) for a .XXX sTLD. The FSC, an adult industry lobby group in the US urges "the Board to make sure it has the full and accurate information necessary to make a sound decision on ICM's application." The FSC says the decision while having some effect on the domain name space will also "have more far reaching effects on the regulation of internet content and on ICANN's potential role as a direct or indirect content regulator."
