ICANN blocks 1.5 million Domain Names.

One and a half million domain names, including many potential
valuable three and four-letter strings, have been been given special
protection across all gTLDs under a new ICANN policy.

The long-discussed, highly controversial reservation of the names and
acronyms of various intergovernmental and non-governmental
organizations has become official ICANN Consensus Policy and will be
binding on all gTLD registries and registrars from August this year.

The policy gives special protection to (by my count) 1,282 strings in each of the
(again, by my count) 1,243 existing gTLDs, as well as future gTLDs. That
comes to over 1.5 million domains.

Here is the full list:

I
knew that you had to be a citizen of the EU in order to buy .eu domains
and considering UK is in Brexit, I was lucky enough to have dual
nationality Poland being in the EU also. But what does this mean? seeing
as in the list .eu is under protection for what reason?

I welcome your feedback on this, my email is info@startbrand.co.uk
