Pinyin still leading the way!

Noticed on 4.cn that JiUye.com (employment) is on auction with 6 days to go current price ¥66,000 RMB, perhaps that is why Sedo were looking for pinyin and English Chinese names.

Recently: xueche.com (learn driving)¥182,888 RMB + others.

The locals are still falling over themselves to buy pinyin as opposed to idn.

Re: Pinyin still leading the way!

Those people are very short-sighted. It is great to see they are willing to pay that much for pinyin names. I will not let my IDNs go cheaper.

It is an easy decision for sedo, follow the market. We should not expect auction houses to promote IDNs for us.

Actually, those pinyin names can be considered as "typo" of the IDN names. They will get some natural traffic if the corresponding IDN names are developed and popular. On the other hand, if the pinyin names are developed, that will help the IDN names even more.

Re: Pinyin still leading the way!

Pinyin and IDN trademark squatters are in for surprises .
An explosion of UDRP rulings or URS etc ....

Not sure if companies in China will try the reverse hijacking route on
generics....

CNNIC has the 2 year rule of inaction that favors the respondant over the claimant....
