.AFRICA new gTLD: ICANN Board’s conduct was inconsistent with ICANN’s Bylaws?

A "club is a club": sports clubs, fan clubs, night clubs to use a domain name ending in ".club".
From the author:
"In its Final Declaration issued July 9, 2015, a three-member Independent Review Process (“IRP”) Panel found that the ICANN Board’s conduct was inconsistent with ICANN’s Bylaws and Articles of Incorporation in rejecting the application by the DotConnectAfrica Trust (DCA) for the .AFRICA new generic top-level domain name (gTLD)".

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.
