October 10, 2008, New York - As part of our Civic Names Set-Aside effort we came across a potential conflict between the civic and culture sectors. The civic sector is represented by the Rugby neighborhood in Brooklyn’s Community District 17 - the area between Linden, Utica, Ditmas, and Nostrand Avenues. And with cultural sector by the sport of rugby.

How do we decide who gets the domain name, the neighborhood or sport? Is it a scrum that decides, or can we develop sensible guidelines?

This is not an unanticipated development, and we’ve been working with ICANN and other city TLD developers to create guidelines to help make important decisions of this type.  Our Domain Name Allocation Plan presents our thoughts and progress on questions of this sort. And our Resident Advisory Network provides an opportunity to get involved with questions of this type. See the discussion on Rugby vs. Rugby. (Updated 10/10/2008)
