It is DotCasino’s intent to operate .CASINO as a restricted gTLD, at least as compared to open, unrestricted TLD’s such as .com and .net, consistent with its stated mission⁄purpose and employing the registration and use restrictions set forth herein and as promulgated by Rock Gaming from time to time. The restricted nature of the gTLD will help eliminate or minimize social costs, as registrants are limited to Rock Gaming LLC and its affiliates which have been vetted by Rock Gaming. Further, the .CASINO gTLD implicates Rock Gaming’s reputation and regulated status, further minimizing or eliminating social costs as compared to users⁄operators of unrestricted gTLD’s, which have no such reputations or status to protect.

To further help eliminate or minimize social costs, DotCasino will implement all abuse mitigation and rights protection mechanisms set forth in applicable ICANN Consensus Policies, ICANN’s registry agreement, any applicable rules of law and any policies implicated for compliance with DotCasino’s response to Questions 28 and 29 related to mitigation of abusive registrations and rights protection mechanisms.

DotCasino and Rock Gaming are both committed to operating the .CASINO gTLD in a professional and commercially reasonable manner. DotCasino does not believe that operating a gTLD in a manner that unreasonably facilitates undue and unreasonable social costs is professional or commercially reasonable. In that regard, DotCasino will reserve the right to adopt registration and use policies as commercially reasonably necessary, in DotCasino’s and the Rock Gaming’s sole discretion, to mitigate any such undue and unreasonable social costs towards fulfillment of the mission⁄purpose of the .CASINO gTLD and the goals set forth in DotCasino’s answer to Question 18(b).

1. Resolving multiple applications for a particular domain name.

All domains in the .CASINO gTLD will be allocated solely to Rock Gaming LLC and its affiliates in the sole discretion of the Rock Gaming LLC pursuant to the mission⁄purpose of the gTLD as set forth herein. We do not anticipate that there will be multiple applications for a particular domain name, as Rock Gaming will determine who may register what name, and any such registrant will be under contract with Rock Gaming regarding use of a particular .CASINO domain name. In the unlikely event of contention, resolution of any contention over a .CASINO domain name must be consistent with the Rock Gaming’s regulated status and the mission⁄purpose of the .CASINO gTLD. In the unlikely event that multiple application from Rock Gaming affiliates are not distinguishable, Rock Gaming will seek to resolve any such contention by encouraging the affiliates to work together in pursuit of the mission⁄purpose of the .CASINO gTLD. In the extremely unlikely event such multiple affiliates cannot resolve the contention, DotCasino and Rock Gaming will evaluate industry-practiced and commercially reasonable ways to distinguish the affiliates. While Rock Gaming does not intend to use an auction process to resolve any such situations, DotCasino and Rock Gaming reserve the right to explore resolving the contention via an auction process. Any such auction, in the unlikely event one should take place, would be performed by an experienced domain auction provider under best auction practices. In any event, Rock Gaming reserves the right to make final determinations in all multiple affiliate⁄contention situations.

2. Cost benefits for registrants in the .CASINO gTLD.

DotCasino, in consultation with the Rock Gaming, intends to investigate the provision of one or more introductory discounts, advantageous pricing and⁄or bulk registration discounts for Rock Gaming during initial operations of the .CASINO gTLD, and will review the results of any such discount(s) or pricing to determine if further discounts or other advantageous pricing should be implemented at any further time during operations of the .CASINO gTLD. DotCasino, in consultation with the Rock Gaming, will determine pricing thereafter.

3. Price escalation.

DotCasino does not intend to make contractual commitments to registrants regarding the magnitude of price escalation.
