Why I don’t want to be a .REALTOR (new gTLD)

Extract: NAR will let me buy “teresaboardman.realtor” or “sellTeresa.realtor.” Unless I point my .realtor domain name to my own website, it will direct traffic to a realtor.com “profile website.”
I think I’ll just stick with my .com domains.

Does auctioning off a new gTLD to the highest bidder set up failure?

Extract: When an auction is used to resolve a new top level domain name contention set, the company with the highest perceived value of the domain name gets it. That makes sense. But does it mean the other applicants were all wrong in their calculations of how much the TLD was worth?.

".OOO owner isn’t just crazy, it’s a misinformation machine"

Extract: Then yesterday I read a The Economic Times article that says Infibeam’s CEO told it “all 34,000 global brands registered with the Trademark Clearing House from over 100 countries have purchased the dotooo domain name from Infibeam”. This is simply not true. For the record, I count just 222 domain names in .ooo’s zone file.

Letter from Fadi Chehadé to French Axelle Lemaire

We are happy to read that persons "in charge" read our documents submitted to ICANN in 2013.

Extract "The parties involved are now working on devising a mechanism which would offer protections to a reserved list of names ("Geographical Indications and Appellations of Origin are easy to protect: stick to the official databases), which would be contractually protected through ICANN’s registry agreement, along with a set of rules around how those names could be distributed to parties that have interests in and the rights to them.

Release of new gTLDs uncorks a wave of criticism

Extract: The major concern with the release of .vin and .wine gTLDs, which are available on first in first served basis, is the potential for unrelated parties to deliberately misrepresent their association with particular wine regions, for example, bordeaux.wine, and for consumers to be misled into believing there is a connection with the region. Wine producers consider the new gTLDs fail to protect “geographical indications” (GIs) and may ultimately weaken their significance and erode the reputation of these well-known regions.
