Explanation: 

Competition: Amazon EU S.à r.l. is seeking exclusive access to a common generic string (.store) that relates to a broad market sector.

Reason/Rationale: 

The proposed string, .store, is a common generic term relating to a market sector.

Amazon EU S.à r.l. is proposing to exclude any other entities, including potential competitors, from using the TLD.

Restricting common generic strings for the exclusive use of a single entity could have unintended consequences, including a negative impact on competition.

Early warnings provide a mechanism to initiate a discussion between a government and an applicant on particular issues or questions. It is intended that a constructive dialogue through this process will assist applicants to better understand the concerns of governments, and help governments to better understand the planned operation of proposed gTLDs.

Possible Remediation: 

Amazon EU S.à r.l. should specify transparent criteria for third party access to the TLD. These criteria should be appropriate for the types of risk associated with the TLD, and should not set anti-competitive or discriminatory conditions relating to access by third parties.

These criteria should form part of any binding contract with ICANN, and be subject to clear compliance oversight by ICANN.

Further Notes: 

This Early Warning is from the Department of Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy (DBCDE), on behalf of the Australian Government. In the first instance, communications and responses to this early warning should be emailed to gacearlywarning@gac.icann.org, with the text “Australian EW” and the application ID in the subject field.
