Olney has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Sony has already secured their IDN

I was checking for Japanese IDNs for video games & found that Sony already owns プレイステーション.com which is PlayStation in Japanese. The name was originally registered in 2000 so I think that Sony acquired it from someone that registered it first.

Since Sony is a Japanese company I believe they understand the value of their IDN more than other companies. Currently the URL is not active but according to the whois records it is owned by Sony's Legal Dept.

Re: Sony has already secured their IDN

Whilst I would love that Sony see the long term future of IDNs, it could just be a low cost punt on the future, or a covering of bases. Hopefully, it is a true investment in the future of international domains.
