NEW GTLD PROGRAM: STRING SIMILARITY CONTENTION SETS

No surprises here.

It puts the brakes on Afilias' application for .info in simplified chinese, but nothing else we weren't expecting already. Verisign's in the clear.

thanks for posting.

.site and .сайт
.online and .онлайн

were not put in contention sets because the only thing evaluated was visual similarity. Will be weird if they all offer cyrillic 2nd level domains.

Applicants can file objections on grounds of aural similarity & similarity in meaning. If they win their objections, they're put in a contention set with the targeted string.

Now that IDN TLD's are a reality, I can't see any good reason to offer IDN 2LD's in an ASCII TLD or ASCII 2LD's in an IDN TLD.

They should actually ban it, going forward.

Re: NEW GTLD PROGRAM: STRING SIMILARITY CONTENTION SETS

They're only concerned with visual similarity.

I think this is good. No change of a hold-up.
