<P>Certainly it could be interesting to consider a new sponsored TLD space for IGOs, but I am 
thinking&nbsp;that .int is that space, isn't it? I also think from my conversations with some of those who have 
positions regarding this issue that they are viewing the igo name as what I might view the trademark of a famous and 
well known brand of a multi national company. That is, they are asking for their "name" in any gTLD. I am 
not sure that a new sponsored TLD would&nbsp;be&nbsp;be responsive to their &nbsp;</P>
<P>The situation today is that a famous and well known brand holder registers, or defends their brand, in 
the TLDs where they veiw it important and relevant to do so. The value of sponsored TLDs is that since it is a 
"defined" space, it is not allowed for those who do not fit the "sponsorship criteria" to 
register. Thus, if a space is focused on international organizations, with some definition of that, only 
international organizations who meet that criteria. can register. I am under the impression that only 
international organizations with certain standing can register in the int.</P>
<P>That sounds like a "sponsored" TLD, functionally, at least.<BR></P></DIV>

<DIV></DIV>&gt;Colleagues, I wonder if there is a case to be made for new sTLDs 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;international intergovernmental organizations (say .igo) and 
countries (say
<DIV></DIV>&gt;While these would not deal directly with offending sites in the 
rest of the
<DIV></DIV>&gt;gTLD namespace, it would at least provide a single official 
address for IGOs
<DIV></DIV>&gt;and countries.
<DIV></DIV>&gt;The concept could, of course, be extended to other sensitive 
types of name.
<DIV></DIV>&gt;Am I right off track or does this have some merit?

<DIV></DIV>&gt;Please find enclosed the letter and its annex from WIPO that we 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;last week.
<DIV></DIV>&gt;I understand there were some technical issues with getting it on 
<DIV></DIV>&gt;web-site but as soon as these are arranged it will go up, 
hopefully already
<DIV></DIV>&gt;today. I would like to offer my excuses for that.
