> Very shortly, Donuts will post a comment (http://www.icann.org/en/news/public-comment/ioc-rcrc-recommendations-28sep12-en.htm) discussing our decision to reserve second-level names for the International Olympic Committee and Red Cross/Red Crescent, in the six official United Nations languages, as detailed in Section of the Applicant Guidebook.  The reservation will apply to all gTLDs eventually awarded to and administered by Donuts.
> Donuts will place these second-level names on its Domain Protected Marks List, a Donuts service that precludes registration of certain terms when any new gTLD administered by Donuts is made available for end-user registration.  Donuts will waive fees for this service for the IOC, Red Cross, and Red Crescent.
> Please note this is a voluntary move on our part and a gesture of good will to the IOC.  Donuts will continue to participate in further policy development regarding the protection of certain types of names at all levels.
> I invite you to share this news with others in the community as appropriate.  We are notifying ICANN and others of this decision.
> Please feel free to contact me with questions.
> Best regards,
> Richard Tindal
