The Federal NIC, operator of .fed.rep.br (FEDerative REPublic of 
BRazil), whose suffix (ccSLD) is intended for domain names for foreign 
organizations and individuals, such as emabiaxadas, consulates, 
diplomatic representations, international companies and others, it comes 
through this participation to contribute on the aspects of rights in 
relation to gTLDs.

1 - ICANN has in recent years adopted a business model for new gTLDs 
without authorization from the global community, allowing the creation 
of several useless gTLDs or confusing gTLDs.

Some examples can be mentioned, such as:

.work and .works,
.photo, .photos and .photography,
.xyz, .ooo, .final, .gdn and etc ...

2 - There is a problem related to .WED, which has not yet been solved. 
This problem can be used as an alert for domain registrants in new 
gTLDs, as ICANN in all requests for clarification on how the .WED 
problem would be resolved, ICANN itself, has not responded.

3 - Price variation is the high price increase of new gTLDs, it is 
causing problems for consumers, who are unable to pay for expensive 
domains, such as .cars, .hiv, .bank and others.

4 - ICANN should form a committee to define which new gTLDs are in the 
public interest, and define its own policies to protect these gTLDs from 
possible bankruptcy or other operational problems.

5 - ICANN should always promote a public tender to choose new operators 
for legacy gTLDs and public interest gTLDs, as this will win the best 
that it offers cost-benefit.

6 - ICANN must combat possible monopolies, such as Verisign, Donuts, 
Godaddy Registry and other large operators, as this business model is 
detrimental to the consumer and the domain market.

Sincerely, Federal NIC
