.AFRICA new gTLD: “Case far from Closed”

A "club is a club": sports clubs, fan clubs, night clubs to use a domain name ending in ".club".
From the author:
"Akram tried to delve into the history of the .africa by alluding that the ICANN Board took the advice of the ICANN Governmental Advisory Committee (GAC), however the GAC advice was heavily criticized by the IRP panelists who faulted GAC for not giving any rational for their decision. The ICANN board was equally chastised for taking the GAC advice at face value and failing to do due diligence and probe the reasons".

Reminders:
  • Trademarks should submit their datas into the Trademark Clearinghouse to participate in future Sunrise Periods. The official TMCH calendar is available here;
  • For a better recognition, African clubs should register a ".club" domain name at their accredited Registrar.
