MarkMonitor is pleased to submit the following detailed comments
regarding Module 5 of the Draft Applicant Guidebook.

Section 5.4.1 - What is Expected of a Registry Operator
While it certainly makes sense that community-based TLDs are required to
maintain self prescribed policies and procedures, we also believe that
the Mission / Purpose as described in Standard Applications should be
used to determine ongoing Registry eligibility. For example, if an
applicant states that the purpose of a particular Standard TLD is to
make it publicly available, but then keeps it for its own internal use,
under the existing Terms and Conditions there is no recourse unless
intellectual property rights are infringed. In order for meaningful
objections to be raised to applications, objectors must understand how
the TLD is to be used, and the objectors need to know that the self
prescribed use will not change over time.
