Olney has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Stupid Move...

Today I was taking a stroll through what's called Omotesando in Tokyo. It's connected to Harajuku which is one of the most fashionable places in Tokyo.

Anyway I saw a small red truck parked on it was...


急募.com

In big letters
Undeneath it was kyubo.com

I came home thinking they must own the IDN also...

but alas...
They are not another company bought it.
But this does prove that Japanese do know it is easier to just display the .com in native Japanese.


I'll try to take a picture of it for you guys...

Re: Stupid Move...

That's the thing I didn't buy someone else did.

I'm in Tokyo it's easy to find me if I own someone's trademark.

I don't feel safe doing that...

Re: Stupid Move...

Actually I know one more
I guess maybe I'll buy it for testing later to see what kind opf type in traffic it really gets.

The OVT stats show about 1500 searches with the extension.

Yeah I realized that using the OVT stats you guys can only see to 4,000 to 5,000 or higher.

I believe there's plenty of signs like this.

The other onw I know is actually available.

Re: Stupid Move...

Not the smartest thing for me to do but I registered one that is popular

車選び.com
1589OVT 車 選び com

Actually it's a website for people to choose cars

Now theoretically it should get type ins each day.
Lets see how it goes... Or if I get in trouble for owning this...
