Official: .CAM no longer too confusingly similar to .COM

A "club is a club": sports clubs, fan clubs, night clubs to use a domain name ending in ".club".
From the article:
"Based on the average, reasonable Internet’s user’s experience, and the importance of search engines, in the [Final Review Panel]’s view, confusion, if any, between .COM and .CAM is highly likely to be fleeting. While a fleeting association may create some “possibility of confusion” or evoke an “association in the sense that the string brings another string to mind,” both such reactions are insufficient under the ICANN SCO standard to support a finding that confusion is probable".

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, Cam clubs should register a ".club" domain name at their accredited Registrar.
