Re: New gTLD agb - Commercial & Business Users Constituency Position Statement

Rationale for BC Recommendation:

Since 2009, the BC has encouraged ICANN to make it easier for gTLD applicants to offer multiple variations of their TLD string, so long as the variations are legitimate translations or transliterations of the applied-for string. The Joint Applicant Support WG recommended “Support for Build-out in Underserved Languages and Scripts” (item 2.2.1 in their Milestone Report).

ICANN should design incentive mechanisms to encourage the build-out of IDNs and underserved language-script communities. One incentive mechanism could be a reduction of the standard application fee for additional IDN versions and translations of the applied-for string. For example, the applicant for .museum should be allowed to pay one application fee for .museum, plus a reduced application fee for ".museo". The applicant could also pay incremental reduced fees for translations or transliterations in Korean, Arabic, etc.

ICANN Board and staff have acknowledged that some applicant processing costs would be avoided when evaluating additional strings from the same applicant. The reduced fee should be set such that all incremental costs are covered by the applicant and not shifted to other applicants.

If the applicant is seeking new translations of a current gTLD, the BC continues to believe that all registrants should have the option to register their second level names in all of the linguistic variations offered by that TLD. For example, the registry agreement should allow the registrant of [trademark].museum the option to register their equivalent second-level domain in the additional related scripts granted to the TLD operator.

• While not part of the Guidebook, effective Communications and Outreach activities are essential to the success of this gTLD expansion. ICANN’s communications effort must do more than simply promote new gTLD applications. It must also fully inform user and business communities around the world of all the major changes coming with the introduction of new gTLDs.

Michael Castello is a part of the group that published these documents, not sure when he joined and how he views things now but an older view here (Comments): http://www.thedomains.com/2009/07/26...take/#comments

Michael Castello:

"My biggest worry is IDNs. That could reduce global market share to a name like Bullion.com that already has an international audience. If ICANN allows every nation, even those that speak English as a second language, to somehow have the IDN Bullion.com owned and made into a different site then we am a going to lose market reach. Bullion.com should resolve to Bullion.com in every language because most would except to find it at that address in any country as they currently are. It’s like someone from Mumbai sending you a package and it ends up with someone else in India because they now have the same address but in a different language. IDNs have more possibility of long term confusion and reducing our traffic then gTLDs."


Drewbert:

"You can have all the rights you want in .us but .com is global. If you want [bulloin].us in all languages to protect your bullion.us that’s fine. Go talk to the .us guardians.

If you wanted ascii.com to be protected from idn.com you should have sorted it out in 2001. You missed the boat by nearly a decade."

Drewbert:

"ACtually I think Michael’s idea is great, except for one thing.

He has decided that the English language gets precedence because they were “here first”.

I say the language with the most users gets precedence, because that will cause the least amount of “user confusion”, won’t it?

So the owner of bullion.com in Chinese gets to have the English version. The Rubber Duck will be initiating a transfer request shortly, Michael. Please unlock bullion.com and confirm it when it arrives in your email.

Good night, and thank you for playing."
