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.
