ICANN Involvement

Brights Consulting participates in the different activities and meetings of ICANN. [6][7]

On May 14, 2011, the company provided comments on the Applicant Guidebook particularly on Question 22, which requires applicants to show how they will be able to incorporate the GAC principles for the protection of geographical codes and strings in the various levels of the TLD. Brights Consulting acknowledged the importance of protecting geo TLDs but they also asked ICANN to understand the situation of possible .brand applicants affected by the requirement. The company suggested to develop a universal solution that will allow .brand applicants to release the reserved geographic names, including the two-label country codes for their exclusive internal use.[8]
