22.1 Reserved Names

dotStrategy will reserve the country and territory names contained in the following internationally recognized lists (ʺReserved Geographic Namesʺ) at the second level, in accord with Specification 5 of the ICANN Registry Agreement:

-the short form (in English) of all country and territory names contained on the ISO 3166- 1 list, as updated from time to time, including the European Union, which is exceptionally reserved on the ISO 3166-1 list, and its scope extended in August 1999 to any application needing to represent the name European Union;

-the United Nations Group of Experts on Geographical Names, Technical Reference Manual for the Standardization of Geographical Names, Part III Names of Countries of the World; and,

-the list of United Nations member states in 6 official United Nations languages prepared by the Working Group on Country Names of the United Nations Conference on the Standardization of Geographical Names.

To the extent that additional reserved geographic names are incorporated into the Registry Agreement or sent to dotStrategy by the ICANN Board, the registry will add such names to the list of Reserved Geographic Names for protection at the second level.

22.2 Contingent Release of Reserved Names

The default for all reserved country and territory names on dotStrategyʹs Reserved Geographic Names list will be to prevent the registration of the reserved name as a second-level domain name in .fun.

dotStrategy recognizes, however, that some governments, territories or other entities protected by names on the Reserved Geographic Names list may wish to actually use a name to which that have a claim of right. dotStrategy will maintain a procedure for use by authorized governments to transition a name from reserved to registered, if approved and authorized by both the relevant government and ICANN.

22.3 Compliance with Future Policy Development

The needs of governments, governmental agencies, and treaty-based organizations change and evolve from time to time, and dotStrategy will follow changes requested by governments and ICANNʹs Governmental Advisory Organization and promptly implement all new approved policies or reasonable requests made to the registry.
