Back in October we reported the proposal by Icann to add a number of new domain suffixes, including .uk, .home and .shop.
Complaints have been registered against a number of the 1930 new domain endings that were proposed. Amongst those with lodged complaints are .bet, .islam and .bible.
The Government Advisory Committee (Gac) have also raised objections and requested the net address regulator to provide arguments in the result of refusal. Fears that many of the potential domains may not have consent by all individuals that fall under that category. Another concern by Gac is the use of words with more than one meaning. For example a brand name that is also the name of a country or landmark.
Gac will make an announcement which could come as soon as this week in regards to the conflict of interest surrounding the controversial domain proposals.
