Amendment No. 2 to the .JOBS Registry Agreement

(6 August 2010)


ICANN and EmployMedia LLC agree that the following modification is made to the 5 May 2005 dot-JOBS Registry Agreement:

Appendix S, VII.2

[Old Text]

.jobs domain registrations are limited to the legal name of an employer and/or a name or abbreviation by which the employer is commonly known.

[New Text]

.jobs "company name" domain registrations are limited to the legal name of an employer and/or a name or abbreviation by which the employer is commonly known. Domain registrations are permitted for other types of names (e.g., occupational and certain geographic identifiers) in addition to the "company name" designation.

[Delete]

A reserved list of names will be employed to prevent inappropriate name registrations. Certain groups of domains will be reserved, such as, e.g., a list of occupational identifiers (e.g., the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics list of SOC occupations), industry identifiers (e.g., healthcare.jobs) and certain geographic identifiers (e.g., northeasternohio.jobs). These restricted lists are in addition to the restriction that .jobs domains comprise only trade names or commonly-known names (reserved list domains will be registered to the Registry Operator in the registry database to reflect their status as reserved names). In the event other domains are made available for registration (which would require approval as set forth in this Agreement), such domains will be specifically enumerated (i.e., not creatable by an applicant) and will be pre-screened to remove any inappropriate names.

Appendix S, Part VII.3

[Old Text]

SHRM and Employ Media have already agreed upon certain policies (available upon request in the Employ Media/SHRM agreement). The Charter is an example. In an additional example, .jobs registrations will only be allowed for domain names which (i) are for the legal name(s) under which a proposed registrant does business (e.g., a trade name such as EIduPontdeNemours.jobs), for a name under which the proposed registrant is commonly known (e.g., dupont.jobs) or which includes such a legal or commonly-known name (e.g., dupontcanada.jobs); (ii) are based upon an application for registration which is submitted by a Qualified Applicant; and (iii) names as the registrant of the domain name the entity which is identified by the trade name or commonly known name. These current policies are only revisable/amendable via the policy making process described herein.

Appendix S, Part VII.4

[New Text]

4. .JOBS non-companyname Phased Allocation Program ("Phased Allocation Program") The domain names included within the scope, referred to by Employ Media in its Registry Services Evaluation Process (RSEP) as the Phased Allocation Program, shall be limited to non-companyname .jobs domain names, not including all second-level country names set forth on the ISO-3166 list as referenced in Appendix 6 to this Agreement.

Pursuant to the Phased Allocation Program, Registry Operator may elect to allocate the domain names via the following processes: 1) Request for Proposals (RFP) to invite interested parties to propose specific plans for registration, use and promotion of domains that are not their company name; 2) By auction that offers domains not allocated through the RFP process; and 3) A first-come, first-served real-time release of any domains not registered through the RFP or auctionnprocesses. Registry Operator reserves the right to not allocate any of such names.

The parties have duly executed this Amendment as of the date last written below.
