New .SUCKS gTLD: right to criticize gets a bigger public platform on the internet

Extract: "ICANN’s approval of the .sucks gTLD has not gone unnoticed. Specifically, former Senator Jay Rockefeller of West Virginia, who chaired the Senate Commerce Committee, spoke out against ICANN’s approval of the gTLD, saying that the ownership of .sucks acts as “little more than a predatory shakedown scheme.” Senator Rockefeller further explained that “… any potential this gTLD might have to increase choice or competition in the domain name space is overwhelmed by the ways it will be used to unfairly defame individuals, nonprofit organizations, and businesses".
