Following the call this week and the request for proposals that we think could garner support, I would like to suggest amending the text in AGB 188.8.131.52.2 part 2 on non-capital city names by adding the blue text.
1. It is clear from applicant statements within the application that the applicant will use the TLD primarily for purposes associated with the city name. For the avoidance of doubt, where the applicant states in their application that they intend to use the TLD as a .Brand (intend to have Specification 13 in their Registry Agreement) it will be taken that the TLD will not be used primarily for purposes associated with the city name.
The current AGB text states that "city names present challenges because city names may also be generic terms or brand names, and in many cases city names are not unique". This language does not aim to change the position from the AGB 2012, but merely aims to provide greater clarity and certainty for potential applicants. At the same time, it ensures that the relevant authorities are consulted when an applicant intends to use a TLD for purposes associated with a city. If a government or local authority is concerned with an application, they are not precluded from filing an objection (as they could in 2012) or filing their own application. The current rules on resolving contention sets in AGB 184.108.40.206.4 or module 4 will not be impacted by the text.
