The .travel Registry and World Tourism Organization agree on priority right

The .travel Registry, in cooperation with the World Tourism Organization, has affirmed a priority right to the nations of the world to register their respective country, cities, and place names in the .travel Registry.
The priority right provides individual nations with the ability to register their domain names with the .travel Registry before other legitimate travel or tourism entities, which may share the same names, have access to those names. Hope this will prevent other "barcelona.com" or "southafrica.com" cases...
