by Frank Michlick in Categories: ICANN / Policy

This morning ICANN release the much anticipated version 3 of the applicant guidebook for new TLDs and opened the corresponding Public Comment Forum.The release of the new documents detailing how interested parties can apply for the much discussed new TLDs goes hand in hand with an overhaul of the corresponding website.

In a first review, Jothan Frakes of Minds + Machines notes that Module 2 – 2.1.1.4.1 (p14), rule i alpha 3 codes from ISO 3166-1 could mean that Apple needs to get permission from China before applying for .MAC (due to the similarity to Macao) and .GEO would need permission from Georgia to start up their new TLD.
