And ...... .WINE new gTLD (and .VIN) is a GO !

A "club is a club": sports clubs, fan clubs, night clubs to use a domain name ending in ".club".
It seems that .WINE and.VIN new gTLDs are a Go. Note that this is an interesting story because many attempts were made to block these TLDs from happening but ICANN let it go. Thank you Fadi? Not sure...

Extract: "There is no international agreement on GI protection — the US and Australia opposed the EU’s position on .wine — so this may be seen as a case of ICANN creating new rights where none previously existed".
