Re: CircleID on new gtld's and IDN's

Ms. MacKinnon has written another fine post on the politics and the
backroom machinations of ICANN...and the TM lawyers etc....


Governments worldwide are going to continue to behave badly.
The US with wiretapping its own citizens now...
The Aussies are censoring now...

Canada is having its internal political correctness issues with Native Canadians and French Quebec...

I gather the UK govt used to ban the IRA's Gerry Adams voice and face on the BBC not too long ago...

Was that PM fiat, or is there a law/statute for that sort of thing ????



So I agree that the PRC does not have the 'natural' right to dictate language use for Chinese words worldwide.
Taiwan still treasures education with Traditional characters....

No doubt the PRC is powerful enough to intimidate the TW/HK/SG DNS bureaus etc..to get the Falun Gong names dismissed.


But I think the Arab language is in for a very rough ride with this stuff in the next 10 years.


If Emirs are buying single # Dubai car license plates for millions, why wouldn't they start buying GTLD's for sport.

Granted it would make Arabic dot com/net more stable as brands...
But I do think that 100's of Chinese/ Arab millionaires are going to be lured to
an IDN GTLD land rush by 2011.
What a waste......


ICANN will get their $180K multiples, but there may end up being a lot of confusion .

The Chinese will go with the Great Firewall solution for sure..

I think Arab govt's will have a very tough time imitating the Iranian solution when civil unrest and twittering/SMS hits for them.

Via mobile phones....I think Egypt and Syria are in for squeeze soon...

Iran showed that when the women lose their fear of billyclubs...the idea that the regime requires the burqa for cultural female respect/awe is bullshit...
