Brief Overview: This public comment period is to gather community input on the proposed amendment [PDF, 204 KB] to modify Donuts Inc.'s Domains Protected Marks List (DPML) service across all generic top-level domains (gTLDs) in its portfolio. The modification to the service adds the following provision: "In some instances, approval from the applicable DPML holder may be required for a third party with the same trademark to register the blocked name." This amendment is intended to implement the request submitted by the registry operator under the Registry Services Evaluation Policy (RSEP) process to modify its DPML service.
