[GTLD-WG] [CPWG] Subsequent Procedures WT5 on Geonames: A proposal from geoTLD group to change the existing AGB string contention resolution for geonames

Dear all,

I have been asked to bring this proposal from the geoTLD group for
At-Large/ALAC's consideration.

In short, the proposal seeks to change the existing AGB string contention
resolution procedure to recognise rights to non-capital city name strings
under applicable national law.

While I expect the details, intricacies (read: varying circumstances) and
text changes (I suspect there will be) will be discussed at the next WT5
call (on 7 Aug 2019, 20:00 UTC), I understand it to propose in principle
that:

   - Where there is a contention set for a non-capital city name
   string, priority would be given to the applicant that intends to use the
   non-capital city name string for geographic purposes provided the applicant
   is based in a country where national laws exist to protect such names like
   in Switzerland and Germany. Recall that any applicant that wishes to apply
   for/use a non-capital city name for geographic purposes is subject to the
   preventative protection mechanism (i.e. must obtain a letter of support or
   non-objection from the relevant government or local authority)
   - Where there is more than one applicant that intends to use the same
   non-capital city name string for geographic purposes and they all have
   obtained the requisite letter of support or non-objection from their
   respective government or local authority, priority would be given to the
   applicant whose application is intended to serve the non-capital city with
   the larger or largest population size.

I shall attempt to include this on the agenda of today's CPWG Call (on 7
Aug 2019 at 19:00 UTC).

Justine

Dear All,



as announced, I would like to provide the proposal of the geoTLD group on
the topic 4 „Changes to string contention resolution“:



*Update Applicant Guidebook, Chapter 2.2.1.4.4 with:*

If an application for a string representing a geographic name is in a
contention set with applications for identical strings that have not been
identified as geographical names, the string contention will be resolved
using the string contention procedures described in Module 4.



*Update Applicant Guidebook, Module 4. with:*

A// In case there is contention for a string where one application intends
to use the string as a non-capital city name or designated the TLD to
targeting it to a geographic meaning, preference should be given to the
applicant who will use the TLD for geographic purposes if the applicant for
the geoTLD is based in a country where national law gives precedent to city
and/or regional names.



*RATIONALE: This would reflect national law e.g. in countries like
Switzerland and Germany, where e.g. city names have more rights that
holders of the same name.*



B// If there is more than one applicant for an identical string
representing a geographic name, and the applications have requisite
government approvals, the applicant with the larger no of inhabitants will
prevail over the smaller one. As the criteria „size“ has been used in the
CPE criteria, it is apparently a well-accepted criteria.



*RATIONALE: This would reflect the current rule of the Applicant Guidebook
„capital city has priority over smaller city.*



I’m happy to explain our thoughts until our call, individually or on the
list.



Kind regards

Katrin
