  • the use or intentino to use the domain name exclusively for personal, non-commercial purposes;
  • the use or intention to use the domain name solely for the purpose of expressing non-commercial or critical ideas (e.g. registering thisproductsucks.biz or thiscompanysucks.biz exclusively to criticise or express an opinion on products or the services of a company, without any other business or commercial intent).
