The proliferation of new gTLDS  further  reduces the friction for
registering abusive domain names,
by increasing the number of possible TLD suffixes,  AND it  likely also
makes it  much harder and more
expensive  for  Legitimate entities to effectively control  the use of
their unique names within
the  second-level  domains of  DNS  to discourage false/phishing
registrations  by  proactively
registering their famous company names  or commonly-associated keywords on
top of major TLD suffixes.
