Patagonia's name must not be private

9 August 2012 at 09:43:46 UTC

Hi,

As an Argentine citizen, I don't want .patagonia become a private name, because that name represent my country. There is no other Patagonia in the world. There is no confusion: Patagonia is Argentine. It's a geographic name, with no duplicates.

Every company that choose to carry a greographic name in it's brand knows that there are some limitations on the way they can use that name in certain places and/or contexts.

Regards

Ignacio
