Application Details

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

"Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma Corporation is a global research-driven pharmaceutical company, which engages in research and development, as well as manufacturing and sales, of pharmaceutical product. The company was established in October 2007 through the merger of Tanabe Seiyaku Co., Ltd., founded in 1678, and Mitsubishi Pharma Corporation. Sine that time, the company has contributed to the health of people through the provision of distinctive pharmaceuticals, including drugs for inflammatory and autoimmune diseases, cerebral diseases, and metabolic and cardiorascular diseases as well as psychiatric and neurological drugs, narcotics, plasma fractionation products, and vaccines. Based on its philosophy ʺWe contribute to the healthier lives of people around the world through the creation of pharmaceuticalsʺ, Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma strives to be a company that is trusted by communities.

.mtpc, which stands for Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma Corporation, is a domain for Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma and its stakeholders. The primary purpose of .mtpc is to consolidate Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma-related domain names registered under various TLDs into an official .mtpc extension


n addition, .mtpc is different from other existing TLDs because it will be only available to Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma Corporation and its stakeholders. With its restrictive rules and comprehensive abuse handling processes, Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma Corporation expects minimal abusive domain name registrations in the .mtpc name space. This means that information provided by .mtpc will be reliable and Internet users will be able to enjoy the name space with confidence. .mtpc will deliver unprecedented trust to Internet users, which Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma Corporation believes will spur further positive competition and innovation in the industry."[3]
