[liberationtech] gTLDs and censorship

Dear All,

I wonder if the list members would be able to help me on something. I'm 
looking into the question of how new gTLDs could potentially affect 
censorship in repressive regimes. I have a few general questions:

If you create very fine-grained TLDs will it be making it easier for 
governments to enforce blocking and censorship on those TLDs? 

Or would NGOs or activists steer clear of domains such as .freedom or 

Aren't generic, .com, .org, domains more difficult to block selectively 
without all kinds of collateral damage? 

Would anyone be able to offer any insight, either on list or off list. I'm 
just an interested journalist seeking expert advice. Any help would be 
hugely appreciated.

Best Wishes,
