Prototypical answer:

gTLDFull Legal NameE-mail suffixDetail

Given the fact that the Applicant is a multinational company, with a presence in multiple countries, it has a vested interest in giving its visitors and clients a clear and predictable naming scheme in the .CANALPLUS gTLD. Since various stakeholders may be looking for certain products or services of Canal Plus on the basis of their geographic location or destination, the Applicant may indeed develop plans in order to register domain names that exclusively contain geographic names (country names, city names, names of regions, etc.).

However, if such domain names will be registered, the Applicant will do so considering the following confines:

(i) these domain names will be exclusively registered in the name of the Applicant Registry Operator, and not in the name of a third party that is not controlled by the Applicant Registry Operator, unless agreed upon otherwise with the authority competent for giving its consent in accordance with Specification 5 of the Registry Agreement;

(ii) where consents are required prior to the registration and use of a domain name referred to and in accordance with Specification 5 of the Registry Agreement, the Applicant will obtain such consents before actually registering, delegating and using these domain names.

In any case the registration, delegation and use of domain names corresponding to geographic names will at all times be done in the best interest of:

- the Applicant, the Canal Plus Group and their respective business interests; and

- in order to directly and indirectly promote their activities, products and services in the geographic locations of which the name has been registered in accordance with (i) above.
