Robert Bosch GmBH is not currently planning to utilise geographic names at the second and other levels in the applied-for gTLD.
Bosch accepts the advice of ICANNʹs Government Advisory Committee (GAC) as it relates to geographic names. i.e.
- From GAC Principle 2.1(b) : ʺNew gTLDs should respect the sensitivities regarding terms with national, cultural, geographic, and religious significanceʺ
- From GAC Principle 2.4: ʺTo avoid confusion with country code top level domains, no two letter gTLDs should be introducedʺ
- From GAC Principle 2.7(b): Ensure procedures to allow governments, public authorities or IGOs to challenge abuses of names with national or geographic significance at the second level of any new gTLD.ʺ
To comply with the GAC advice, and the requirements of the Registry Agreement, Specification 5, and as with all other domains in the .bosch TLD, all Two-character labels and Country and Territory Names will be initially reserved.
However, and notwithstanding the absence of geographic names in Robert Bosch GmBH’s forward planning and use intentions, Robert Bosch GmBH has considered the requirements necessary should it, at a later date, seek to obtain ICANN approval for the use of geographic names as follows:
REGISTRY AGREEMENT - SPECIFICATION 5 CRITERIA
§2 The reservation of two-character label string may be released to the extent that Registry Operator reaches agreement with the government and the country-code manager. The Registry Operator may also propose release of these reservations based on its implementation of measures to avoid confusion with the corresponding country names.
§5 the reservation of specific country and territory names may be released to the extent that the Registry Operator reaches agreement with the applicable government(s), provided, further, that Registry Operator may also propose release of these reservations, subject to review by ICANN’s Governmental Advisory Committee and approval by ICANN.
Should Robert Bosch GmBH decide that it wishes to delegate names in categories §2 and §5 above, it will work through its service providers to explore options with ICANN and the Governmental Advisory Committee to ensure a mutually agreeable solution, and seek final approval from ICANN.
