Other forms of the same Domain Name, namely Domain Names resulting from a combination of the lower case unpunctuated and punctuated forms at different points from the ones of the lower case form declared by the Registrant, shall be automatically reserved for the same person, but shall not be included in the individual administrative assignment act and shall be activated upon an application filed with EETT. The above applications filed for the activation of reserved Domain Names shall be activated without any EETT Decision required.
Any Domain Names that are Homographs of a Domain Name already assigned shall be automatically reserved for the Holder of the above Domain Name and shall be activated upon application filed by the said Holder with EETT. The above applications for the activation of reserved Domain Names shall be activated without any EETT Decision required. The reserved forms of a Domain Name do not include those forms that could not be separately included in the scope of assignment.
When a reserved form of a Domain Name is activated, it shall become an active Domain Name and all the provisions set forth in this present Regulation shall be applicable to it.
EETT shall be entitled to make a subsequent Decision in order to determine the use of alphanumeric characters of another form or alphabet.
