Country Names in the DNS

Bret Fausett reports on today's Friday Board Meeting at ICANN, including this item:

ICANN has provisionally reserved (countrynames).jobs and (countrynames).travel pending further review and consideration of a request from the GAC. The issue will go to the GNSO for discussion and possible resolution.

This seems like a good opportunity to plug my article on the legal status of country names in top and second-level domain names: When We Say US™, We Mean It!.
