Dear All, note that thanks to Eduardo and Yrjo as requested in the
last RG call, a condensed version of InternetNZ's comment (since
comments sent to ICANN to the Application Comment Period (ACP) has to
be within a certain length) has been done and available at
Given the submission of the comment by InternetNZ at the last hour
before the RG conference call, there was no time for us to have read
and thus have a discussion on the issue raised. However, with several
comments now on the wiki page (and some on this list), I have noted
that there is not yet broad consensus regarding any comment that could
be sent to the ALAC regarding the .book gTLD application.
Therefore, the gTLD RG will have a conference call on Monday August 6
(At-Large Staff will confirm the time in a subsequent email) to
- discuss the comments raised on the wiki page at
https://community.icann.org/display/newgtldrg/.book+_OG regarding the
.book gTLD application
- decide on whether to send a comment regarding .book to the ALAC on August 6.
- confirm the content of the comment (if decision by the gTLD RG is
taken to submit a comment) that would be sent to the ALAC.
The ALAC will then have 5 days until August 11 to review and vote on
whether to submit the comment as a comment from the ALAC on the .book
application by Amazon S.a.r.l.
I encourage everyone to discuss this on the wiki page before the call
on August 6.
If the decision by the RG is to submit a comment to the ALAC, I
anticipate that the call on August 6 may go over 60 minutes.
