Application Details

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

" The Company intends to be the sole registrant of domain names within the TLD. This will ensure that such domain names only are used for purposes authorized by The Company. Only relatively few, specifically designated employees of The Company will have authority to use or to authorize the use of any such domain names.

To the extent that The Company authorizes affiliates to use any such domain names, a written license will ensure that The Company maintains control over all use of the domain name(s)."[3]
