Dear ICANN Staff,

Donuts recognizes the policy development work currently under way in the GNSO, 
at the request of the ICANN Board, and acknowledges that work may yield a 
recommendation to offer protection at the second level of exact match IOC/RC 
names (as detailed in Section of the Applicant Guidebook) 
in the six official United Nations languages (UN6).  The outcome of this work 
notwithstanding, Donuts further recognizes the two organizations, and use of 
their respective terms of reference, are the subject of unique protections by 
international legal instruments and legislation in multiple jurisdictions, 
protections not afforded to other organizations.  

Accordingly, after consulting with the GAC and other members of the community, 
Donuts elects to reserve these names (as listed in Sec. of the 
Guidebook) proactively, on the organizations’ behalf. Donuts will place these 
second-level names on its Domain Protected Marks List, a Donuts service that 
precludes registration of certain terms when any new gTLD administered by 
Donuts is made available for end-user registration.  Donuts will waive fees for 
this service for the IOC, Red Cross, and Red Crescent.

Donuts will continue to participate in ICANN policy development regarding 
requests for reservation of second-level names by other organizations. 


Richard TINDAL
