new.net new TLDs

Yet another attempt to create new TLDs outside of ICANN's jurisdiction (I've been watching this happen since about the time I got an IP connection) comes from New.net, who's trying with TLDs such as ".shop", ".kids", ".mp3", and ".xxx". The proprietor of Daze Reader notes:

I checked out New.net's site last night to see if "sex.xxx" or "xxx.xxx" or "fuck.xxx" might be available. Those had already been registered, so New.net thoughtfully asked if I might want the domains "sex.kids" and "xxx.kids" and "fuck.kids" instead.

I want to know why these people don't create the .movie TLD. Every studio in the universe would go batshit over it. I watched more previews tonight and they are all doing stuff like "MyFunnyUncleMovie.com" - to hell with that! There should be MyFunnyUncle.movie and to register you should have to have a movie in the IMDB. Piece of cake.
