Type: Brand TLD

.patagonia is a Brand TLD being proposed in ICANN's New gTLD Program. The applicant is sportswear company Patagonia, Inc.[1]

In June 2012 at ICANN Prague, Argentina's GAC representative told the ICANN Board that it was against .patagonia as a closed brand TLD, as it is also the name of a region in South America, comprising the southern parts of Argentina and Chile. The statement was followed by a letter on August 3 from Ambassador Alfredo Morelli of Argentina's Ministry of Foreign Affairs to ICANN's leadership. The Applicant Guidebook states that geographic regions listed in ISO 3166 cannot be applied for except as a geoTLD, however the region of Patagonia does not appear under any of the ISO 3166 lists.[2]
