Amazon EU S.à r.l.



Geographic Names Evaluation Panel

Rights to .amazon

If Amazon EU S.á.r.l. is given the rights to the .amazon TLD, then the TLD will not be following the conventions of other similar TLDs and opens up a precedent for other companies to gain rights to what should be more available TLDs. The .southasia TLD is one such TLD that is similar to .amazon in that it describes a geographic area, not a continent. It seems unlikely that .southasia would ever have its rights given to a company called SouthAsia, so why should .amazon have its rights given to Amazon.
