Geo domain threat

http://www.internetcommerce.org/advo...o_protect_igos


tell you what, with the all the reverse hijacking and BS trademarks being awarded for generic dictionary words... add this one to the pile too, and there will be little left to monetize soon.

i guess the only comfort is in this statement from Twomey "...will consider the matter further with a view toward engaging in discussions on this issue at some point in the future.”

in ICANN speak: "soon" means a long time. "near future" must mean next ice age.

Well at least ICA are already on to it.

The irony is that they seem prepared and willing to fight our battles for us. Makes a refreshing change.

I bet that guy is kicking himself in the ass for not taking the 4 million dollar offer for scotland.com.

Yes, Scotland has a Parliament but no ccTLD of its own, so they are likely to be more eager than most to chase the dot com!
