The latest Board resolution about ,amazon is great news. Thank you for
sharing Sebastian.

For me it highlights a discussion that took place in May with regards to
the possibility of governments and applicants sharing the benefits of a
domain name. There was a small group who saw this as a possible solution
for further discussion but it got side tracked by those who didn't. I had
supported it from the viewpoint of a UN protocol in another area
completely, but relating the concept to parties being able to negotiate how
they might share the benefits that could come out of the use of a
particular geographic term as a domain name. This Board decision suggests
that some consideration should be given to the concept to help to resolve
conflicts between governments and applicants over geographic terms.
