Dear Mr Touton
Further to my email below, I am pleased to inform you that SGNIC has decided to withdraw the trademark applications for .sg in the three classes 38, 41 and 42. We have informed IPOS of SGNIC's decision on 14 March 2003.
We look forward to the discussion at the GAC on how countries and ccTLD managers should respond to a situation where their country code has been subject to trademark registration by any entity, such as a private company. We hope that ccTLD managers will receive guidance on the issue soon.
With best regards,
Lim Choon Sai
