Latest advice from GAC:
Mr. Peter Dengate Thrush
Chairman of the Board
I am writing to express the strong support of the GAC for the requests from the
International Olympic Committee and the International Red Cross and Red Crescent
Movement for the key words most directly associated with their respective Charters to
be added to the Reserved Names list.
The GAC believes that this would provide the most appropriate form of protection of
the global public interest invested in these two organisations. In both cases, there are
existing protections in national law, in multiple jurisdictions, as well as coverage under an international instrument.
The GAC advises the ICANN Board to approve these requests and to direct staff to
reflect the Board’s approval in the May 30, 2011 version of the Applicant Guidebook.
Chair, Governmental Advisory Committee
Senior Advisor to the Government of Canada
