ICANN-NCDNHC, Nov 13th, 2000

Resolution about freedom of speech:

The NCDNHC notes with concern that none of the TLD applications gives overt
support to the notion of free expression. The NCDNHC believes that free
expression is one of the core values that must be supported in the Internet,
and we seek from the Board, a resolution supporting the notion of one or
more new TLDs that explicitely support these values. In order to get such
TLDs created, there must be more rounds of applications; and we support the
idea of reopenning applications as soon as reasonably possible
