Dear Sir / Madam,

Merck KGaA is applicant for .merck and .emerck gTLDs.
Merck KGaA actively defends its trademark portfolio against domain name
abuse and actively fights counterfeiting activities in the field of illegal
drug sales. Among other measures Merck KGaA sent numerous cease and desist
letters and filed UDRP proceedings against bad faith domain name
registrations of our valuable brands.

Merck KGaA is convinced that the proposed "Strawman Solution" and the
"Limited Preventative Registration" will be effectively support our efforts
in increasing the online safety for our consumers and patients worldwide.
We therefore support adoption of both proposals. Merck KGaA believes these
enhancements should be implemented so ICANN’s underlying new gTLD policy of
Protecting the Rights of Others can be achieved - given the breadth, scale
and scope of the proposed expansion of the Domain Name System, especially
as we expect an increase of online infringement within the new gTLD space.

Thank you for your consideration.

Best regards,

Jonas Kölle
