On December 4, 2002, President George W. Bush signed into law the Dot Kids Implementation and Efficiency Act of 2002. This Act requires that Neustar, as the administrator of the .US country code top-level domain(ccTLD), establish a domain to serve as a haven for material that promotes positive experiences for children and families using the Internet, provides a safe online environment for children, and helps to prevent children from being exposed to harmful material on the Internet. This legislation was the culmination of years of effort by several members of the United States Congress. In anticipation of this legislation, Neustar began a public outreach campaign to seek input and advice from members of the children’s content community, child advocacy groups, parents, educators, law enforcement organizations,and other interested individuals to create an initial draft of Guidelines and Requirements, which were published on the Internet in August 2002. The comments we received were instrumental in finalizing this document.
