Application Details

The following is excerpted from the applicant's response to question #18:

"The registry will be a standard, not a community-based, registry restricted to CBRE and its qualified subsidiaries, affiliates or business partners having the Required License (as defined below). The registry will be closed to registrants who do not have a formal, written trademark license agreement with CBRE and⁄or affiliate(s) which own the CBRE mark, specifically allowing the registration of a second level domain name in the registry (the ʺRequired Licenseʺ). There will be no market for second level registrations outside of registrants which are affiliated with CBRE and⁄or which have the Required License.

CBRE Group, Inc. (ʺCBRE Groupʺ), a publicly traded Fortune 500 and S&P 500 company listed on the NYSE (under the symbol CBG), is the worldʹs largest commercial real estate services firm, based on 2011 revenue, with leading full-service operations in major metropolitan areas throughout the world. CBRE Group offers a full range of services to occupiers, owners, lenders and investors in office, retail, industrial, multi-family and other types of commercial real estate. As of December 31, 2011, CBRE Group employed approximately 34,000 employees in more than 300 offices worldwide (excluding affiliate employees and offices), providing a range of commercial real estate services under the ʺCBREʺ brand name, investment management services under the ʺCBRE Global Investorsʺ brand name and development services under the ʺTrammell Crowʺ brand name.

Most of CBRE Groupʹs operations are conducted through CBRE, Inc. or subsidiaries of CBRE, Inc. CBRE is analyzing potential use case options on the type of domain names that will be permitted to be registered and by whom. Until an extensive discussion about the potential use cases can be undertaken across all CBRE business units, CBRE has opted for Neustarʹs Brand Assurance Program that will permit CBRE to scale operations based upon specific implementation plans to be determined by CBRE."[2]
