The .xxx Internet domain apparently will become a reality

Jun 28, 2010 The .xxx Internet domain apparently will become a reality

CRN.com today announced that "ICM Registry, the operator behind .xxx registration, announced today that the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (Icann) has approved the domain."

I remain as opposed to adding a .xxx domain today as I did six years ago when the Today Show interviewed me on the matter. I strongly believe that such a move will make it more likely to increase efforts unconstitutionally to censor adult entertainment, by first making the .xxx domain a voluntary venue followed by government efforts to force sexually explicit material into a .xxx domain followed by laws censoring and criminalizing material from the .xxx domain.

I missed this year’s .xxx domain vote until after it took place at ICANN’s recent Brussells meeting. The matter probably was addressed in advance in material that I receive from the Free Speech Coalition, but I have not been reading all the group’s material, as it arrives to me in the mix of Internet information overload.
