Subject: Updated paper on defensive registration at the 2nd level of new gTLDs

Hello Margie,

Melbourne IT has updated its paper on additional rights protections.   See attached.

Feel free to share.

It is also available online at:


Melbourne IT has offered some comments on the current IPC/BC proposals.   The paper still believes there should be some threshold for some of the mechanisms - such as reservation across gTLDs - but it has simplified the criteria for identifying a high at-risk mark.

Hope this is helpful.
