Hello All,

Following Dev's email below, I would like to ask you to give your opinion
about the following objection comments :
*.amazon* ( https://community.icann.org/display/newgtldrg/.amazon_OG )
*.patagonia* (https://community.icann.org/display/newgtldrg/.patagonia_OG )
*.nyc* ( https://community.icann.org/display/newgtldrg/.nyc_OG )
*.health* ( https://community.icann.org/display/newgtldrg/.health_OG )

IMHO, we, as Africans, we would first focus on the *.health* (
https://community.icann.org/display/newgtldrg/.health_OG ) before the other
3 first three comments which address more LACRALO and NARALO.  I would
certainly support those regions' advice.


Bonjour tout le monde,

Suite au mail de Dev ci-dessous, je voudrais vous demander de donner votre
avis a propos des commentaires pour objection qui suivent:
*.amazon* ( https://community.icann.org/display/newgtldrg/.amazon_OG )
*.patagonia* (https://community.icann.org/display/newgtldrg/.patagonia_OG )
*.nyc* ( https://community.icann.org/display/newgtldrg/.nyc_OG )
*.health* ( https://community.icann.org/display/newgtldrg/.health_OG )

A mon humble avis, en tant qu'Africains, nous pourrions d'abord examiner *
.health* ( https://community.icann.org/display/newgtldrg/.health_OG ) avant
les 3 premiers commentaires qui s'adressent plus a LACRALO et NARALO.
J'appuierai certainement l'avis de ces regions.

objection comments received on new gTLD applications.

As per the process by which the ALAC can object to a new gTLD
application (see PDF at
http://bit.ly/how-ALAC-files-objection-to-new-gTLD ),
the New gTLD Review Group (gTLD RG) kindly requests the opinions from
the At-Large community on the comments received on the following new
gTLD applications:

.amazon ( https://community.icann.org/display/newgtldrg/.amazon_OG )
.patagonia (https://community.icann.org/display/newgtldrg/.patagonia_OG )
.nyc ( https://community.icann.org/display/newgtldrg/.nyc_OG )
.health ( https://community.icann.org/display/newgtldrg/.health_OG )

To date, there are not enough comments by the At-Large community on
these applications to determine whether there is substantial
opposition as described in Section 3.5.4 of the Applicant Guidebook.
This section describes 4 tests for the Dispute Resolution Service
Provider hearing the objection to determine whether there is
substantial opposition from a significant portion of the community to
which the string may be targeted. For an objection to be successful,
the objector must prove that:

* The community invoked by the objector is a clearly delineated community;
* Community opposition to the application is substantial; and
* There is a strong association between the community invoked and the
applied-for gTLD string; and
* The application creates a likelihood of material detriment to the
rights or legitimate interests of a significant portion
of the community to which the string may be explicitly or implicitly

See https://community.icann.org/x/QgkQAg for more details about the
criteria for objection grounds.
You can post your opinions on the wiki pages linked to earlier or by
visiting the new gTLD Dashboard at http://bit.ly/newgtld
before the next gTLD RG conference call on February 1 2013

Kind Regards,

Dev Anand Teelucksingh
