Dear All,

On the gTLD RG call on August 6 2012 regarding the wiki comments
received on the .book application by Amazon EU s.a.r.l, it was decided
not to submit a comment on the application to the ALAC for possible
submission to ICANN's new gTLD comment forum before the close of the
Application Comment Period and to refer the issues raised to the new
gTLD WG.

Below is the proposed text that I will send to the ALAC, new gTLD WG
chair, InternetNZ on behalf of the gTLD RG informing them of this
decision. Comments or suggestions for the text are welcomed. I will
formally send this to the aforementioned persons/organisations as well
as to the At-Large mailing list and update the RG wiki late this
evening or early tomorrow.


Kind Regards,

Dev Anand Teelucksingh
gTLD RG chair

-----------------------

The gTLD Review Group (gTLD RG) received a comment on community
objection grounds by InternetNZ, an ALS in APRALO, on the application
by Amazon EU S.A.R.L for the applied for gTLD string "book" on July 26
2012.

InternetNZ's comment was posted to the At-Large new gTLD Applications
Dashboard Workspace at
https://community.icann.org/display/newgtldrg/.book+_OG

Several comments from At-Large, including members of the gTLD RG were
received and posted on the wiki page at
https://community.icann.org/display/newgtldrg/.book+_OG
including a condensed version of InternetNZ's comment by gTLD RG
members Eduardo Diaz and Yrjo Lansipuro.

The comments by InternetNZ and others raises concerns regarding the
availability of 2nd level domains under generic TLDs. Whether domains
under such proposed generic TLDs should be available or "open" to the
wider public or "closed" to the applicants applying for the proposed
gTLD.

Because such concepts are outside the scope of the application for
".book" by Amazon EU s.a.r.l, the gTLD RG on its conference call on
Monday August 6 2012 decided not to submit a comment on this
application to the ALAC for possible submission to ICANN's new gTLD
comment forum before the close of the Application Comment Period.

However, given the concepts raised regarding the availability of 2nd
level domains under gTLDs has policy implications that impacts
individual Internet end users, the gTLD RG recommends that the issues
raised be referred to the At-Large new gTLD Working Group
(https://community.icann.org/x/8Yoi) for discussion and possible
policy recommendations.
