New gTLD Program: IDN Variants

Translations or transliterations of TLD strings are not considered
variants. The GNSO recommended in their gTLD policy
development work that rights that priority rights for new strings
on the top-level should not derive from existing strings.

Re: New gTLD Program: IDN Variants

I have to say I am struggling a little to determine the provenance and status of this document and it does seem to cause some confusion, an ICANN specialism. However, from what I read previously, I seem to remember that right should not derive from the string per se, but will derive from intellectual property rights of the applicant, which will in all probability amount to exact the same thing but legalistically different.

Re: New gTLD Program: IDN Variants

This is NOT about property rights or .com -> .公司

This is about VARIANTS within the same script, and the reservation of such strings to avoid confusion.

So it mainly affect Chinese, Japanese, Korean(?) and languages like Greek so that if someone applies and gets the TLD .θεσπρωτία the variant without the accent is blocked from being applied for by another entity.

Re: New gTLD Program: IDN Variants

What officially determines if something is a variant of a character or string? Is there some official formula for this or does it just include all possible characters or strings that might look like another?

For Example:

Say portugual would like to start a new gTLD for ".português" which means "portuguese" in english.. Which would be variants, how is this determined:

.português (in portuguese)
.portugues (in portuguese but ascii without accent)
.portuguese (english translation)
.portugués (spanish translation.. notice the accent is similar but not the same)
.portuguέs (same thing with a greek character that looks like the "e")

Which are variants?
