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.
