US online retailer Amazon’s quest for their own top level domain, .amazon, might be doomed after the Governmental Advisory Committee (GAC) of the ICANN agreed it should be rejected.

IP Watch reports that representatives of Brazil, Argentina, Peru and Chile proposed that the GAC “advise” the ICANN Board to reject the application from the US company.

As no country attending objected to the proposal, the GAC now will send “consensus advice” to the ICANN Board to reject .amazon and various non-latin script versions of it.
