Just lost a .cn domain

I just lost a .cn domain to CNNIC, it was probably too sexy in nature, but it had really high searches from within China.

So in case anyone is wondering about the laws in China re: Domains:


Indemnification. You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless CNNIC, NeuLevel, Inc., and their directors, officers, employees, representatives, agents, affiliates, and stockholders from and against any and all claims, suits, actions, other proceedings, damages, liabilities, costs and expenses of any kind, including without limitation reasonable legal fees and expenses, arising out of or relating to Your (i) domain name registration and (ii) use of any .cn domain name. You agree that this indemnification obligation shall survive the termination or expiration of this Agreement.

.CN Use Restrictions. You acknowledge and agree that You may not register or use a .cn domain name that is deemed by the China Internet Network Information Center ("CNNIC") to:

(i) Be against the basic principles prescribed in the Constitution of the People's Republic of China ("PRC");

(ii) Jeopardize national security, leak state secrets, intend to overturn the government, or disrupt the state of integrity of the PRC;

(iii) Harm national honor and national interests of the PRC;

(iv) Instigate hostility or discrimination between different nationalities, or disrupt the national solidarity of the PRC;

(v) Violate the PRC's religion policies or propagate cult and feudal superstition;

(vi) Spread rumors, disturb public order or disrupt social stability of the PRC;

(vii) Spread pornography, obscenity, gambling, violence, homicide, terror or instigate crimes in the PRC;

(viii) Insult, libel against others and infringe other people's legal rights and interests in the PRC; or

(ix) Take any other action prohibited in laws, rules and administrative regulations of the PRC.

Collection of Registration Information. You acknowledge and agree that Dynadot has requested certain information from You during the .cn domain name registration process in order to meet CNNIC and NeuLevel, Inc., requirements, and that You have willingly volunteered such information. You acknowledge and agree that such information will be shared with CNNIC and NeuLevel, Inc.

.CN Enforcement of Accurate WHOIS Data. You agree that Dynadot has the right to accept written complaints from third parties regarding false and/or inaccurate WHOIS data. You agree to comply with any regulation concerning the accuracy of WHOIS data, or enforcement of any such regulation, that may exist between Dynadot and NeuLevel, Inc.

.CN Transfer Restrictions. You acknowledge and agree that You may not transfer a .cn domain name registration to or from a domain registrar that is headquartered, or controlled by an entity located, inside China.

.CN Privacy Restrictions. You acknowledge and agree that You are not permitted to purchase or use Domain Privacy service in connection with any .cn domain name registration.

.CN Representations. You represent that, to the best of Your knowledge and belief, neither the registration of the domain name nor the manner in which it is directly or indirectly used infringes the legal rights of any third party.

.CN Jurisdiction. For the adjudication of disputes concerning or arising from use of the domain name registered, You shall submit, without prejudice to other potentially applicable jurisdictions, to the jurisdiction of the courts of (1) Your domicile state, (2) Dynadot's domicile in California, and (3) the People's Republic of China.

.CN Reservation of Rights. You agree that Your domain name registration shall be subject to suspension, cancellation, or transfer pursuant to any NeuLevel, Inc., or CNNIC adopted specification or policy, or pursuant to any registrar or registry procedure not inconsistent with a NeuLevel or CNNIC adopted specification or policy, (1) to correct mistakes by Dynadot, NeuLevel, Inc., or CNNIC in registering the domain name or (2) for the resolution of disputes concerning the registered domain name. CNNIC and NeuLevel, Inc., reserve the right to "hold", deny, cancel, or transfer any registration that they deem necessary, in their sole discretion. You acknowledge and agree that Dynadot shall not be liable to You or any other party in connection with claims, damages, losses, expenses or costs incurred or suffered by You as a result of actions taken or not taken by CNNIC or NeuLevel, Inc., or other third parties.

CNNIC Dispute Resolution Policy. You agree to obey, comply with, and be bound by the CNNIC Dispute Resolution Policy (located at and, respectively) and any and all revisions which may be made from time to time by CNNIC at its sole discretion.

An additional Note:

Article 29

In case any violation of legal rights and interests are caused by registering or using certain domain name, the domain name holder shall take the responsibility.
