Re: China Tightens Internet Control in the Name of Fighting Porn, Piracy, and Cybercr

As the policy is being developed at the current time, there is no indication that it will contain anything that would enable China to do this. If it ain't in the policy then even Johavah himself ain't going to get the name.

Personally, I see this as a direct challenge from China at Verisign's legitimate rights over the .com and .net. Considering people within China already view these extensions as .com and .net, this really is going to get confusing. I believe that's what China really wants.

I think China wants .中国/.网络/.公司 to be the top extensions within China and Verisign's version of .com/.net as 4th and 5th rate domains. Whether Icann or Verisign will be spineless and allow this to happen remains to be seen.



Actually it's not. Right now the GNSO is writing their draft for the implementation of top level .IDN introduction. The final draft will be delivered to the GNSO on January 7th. Right now would be the time to speak up if a country wants to challenge Verisign's rights to the .com and .net. China is the only country being as aggressive as they are.



This has no comparison to what China is trying to do. If China were applying for .北京 it would be a different story. But they are aggresively going to go after the .com and .net.

Not fear-mongering as I have Chinese names and want them to do well. I'm just saying as a matter of fact. "This is going to get interesting."
