[gtld-tech] draft-lozano-tmch-func-spec and QLP addendum

Hello Maxim,

Thanks for your reply, I am aware of Article 2.2, but that is not what we are confused about.

I want to know if our assumption is correct that during a TMCH sunrise a domain create for a QLP domain name should be validated against the SURL list and not the DNL list. According the Addendum this is correct, however the functional spec suggests otherwise.

Kind regards,
Rik Ribbers

Dear Rik, 

Please be aware that GEO applicants can register domains even not being in SURL for benefit of the Public Authority.

I do not personally understand how to technically formalize it ... list of public authorities is not limited to 10th ... it is up to 1000-2000 departments / wholly owned companies belonging to the city in a case of a capital ... also names of parks and monuments in translation / transliteration ... e.t.c.

it is Art 2.2 of the http://newgtlds.icann.org/en/about/trademark-clearinghouse/rpm-requirements-qlp-addendum-10apr14-en.pdf

Trademark Clearinghouse Rights Protection Mechanism Requirements Qualified Launch Program Addendum

2.2 To a registrant who is an international, national, regional, local or municipal governmental authority (a "Public Authority") and such QLP Name is either identical to, or translation or a transliteration of, (i) the name or acronym of such Public Authority, (ii) the name of a building, park, monument, airport or other public place operated by such Public Authority, (iii) the name of a region, city, street, district or other geographic area under the  governance of such Public Authority, or (iv) the name of a recognized public service provided by such Public Authority. Except as permitted by this Section 2.2, if a QLP Name matches a label contained in the Sunrise List, such QLP Name MUST NOT as part of the Qualified Launch Program be Allocated or registered to a registrant who is not a SunriseEligible Rights Holder with a valid SMD file for a label that matches the QLP Name.

P.s: example: police.GEOtld_city  should not go to eyewearmaker ... it should go to Police department of the city. 

Sincerely Yours,
