29
Government Usesthe City aims to use the TLD for its services to the public. To that purpose a number of domain names will remain reserved for the exclusive use by the City (18b3) The City will keep reserved for its own use a set of domain names that are particular to the City, its bodies and its institutions.(18c)
30
Tourism* http:⁄⁄visit.amsterdam *The introduction and ‘maintenance’ of branding the TLD will be supported by the City’s Marketing departmentIn this context, we believe that proposed TLDs in parallel with the NTCCʹs goals will have a important role on creation of an information society by providing a new name space for businesses, marketing and introducing this new TLDs.
31
Public Spacesa number of domain names will be reserved and issued in batches to parties with a specific interest in the entire batch of domain names in conjunction with the obligation for the registrant to actively use these domains in line with such specific interest. Thus, the Registry can –for a fairly limited but important range of domain names- guarantee valuable experiences for the public. Examples: live.Amsterdam homes.Amsterdam houses.Amsterdam rental.Amsterdam
32
Marketing* Also, the purchaser of a domain name will be offered the option to receive a gift card, so the acquired domain name can become a present to friends or family – the branding campaign of the City will be used to emphasize these kinds of possibilities. * public relations campaign, direct mail to target audiences, use of promotional strategies (gifts for the first domain name, such as t-shirts...Q 18(c) (a) TBG will put in place an extensive Sunrise process, catering to the needs of brand owners. This process will be extensively marketed by TBGʹs marketing department, in particular in on line and print press;
33
LaunchWill emphasize TLD as brand. Want to match names with "rightful" local businesses. Will "batch" coherent sets of names. (Question this on several grounds.) - tmch sunrise for 11 weeks (prio1)

- timely parallel limited reg.period (local prior rights, prio2)

- from feb.11 to apr.30

- landrush (limited reg.period) from jun.2 to jul.3 WHO? Nexus?

- general availability starting on jul.15

the big/only difference is that we have 2 priority classes instead of one, tmch based requests having priority over the ones from holders
of local prior rights.
34
 Nexus Q 20(a) - residence in Barcelona, or
- the pursuit of lawful business activities in the Barcelona area, or
- the pursuit of cultural activities in the Barcelona area, or
- any other kind of direct or indirect presence that is generally accepted as legitimate for, and conducive to the welfare of, the Barcelona community.
Q 20(e)i. b. a) bona-fide membership of the .barcelona community on the Internet, as described above in 20 a).
b) subject to the further requirement that the domain name registrant’s presence in the Barcelona area and the registrant’s use of the domain name must be:
- of a kind that is generally accepted as legitimate and
- conducive to the welfare of the .barcelona community and
- of commensurate quality to the role and importance of the respective domain name where applicable as according to the name space mandate policies as developed by the Registry Operator of .barcelona TLD, and
- abide to the Catalan law regarding consumer protection, product and services labeling, advertising and fair communication, and
- based on good faith at the time of registration and thereafter.
After the launch phase, the validation mode goes from pre-validation to post-validation,
"other valid evidence" No nexus requirement. <b>Q 18(b) e. anyone having a nexus with Boston: given the fact that TBG will not impose any eligibility restrictions in the policies that will govern the .BOSTON gTLD -- which decision has the support from the City of Boston -- anyone who would like to register domain names in the .BOSTON extension will be entitled to do so.

It is, however, likely that during the first weeks or months of operation, TBG will establish a process whereby individuals, companies and organizations that are residing or have been established in the Greater Boston Area would be entitled to apply for and register domain names in the .BOSTON gTLD before registration is opened up to anyone.

Reserved Names"We are planning to have a scheme for reservations, but it has not yet been worked out. We are planning to have reservations for non-profit organisations like museums, theatres and welfare organisations, which will be dealt with in the same way as registered brands. Next to that we are preparing a list with
neighbourhoods and street names. We are not yet sure how we will give out these names."
