russian rep at ccnso meeting

http://sel.icann.org/meetings/seoul2...27oct09-en.txt

from the ccnso in Seoul by the Russian registry rep:

Next, Andrei Kolesnikov from the dot ru registry will present
implementing Cyrillic IDNs in Russia.

>>ANDREI KOLESNIKOV: Thank you very much. Just I'll be really
brief.

So now we have about 2.4 million domains. By the end of this
presentation, it will be 2.4161 hundred. So we really are running up
at the high rate, but we're also involved in the IDN launch and it's
just a brief update where we are.

We all -- you know, we all wait for the end of this week, of course.
It goes without saying.

And as soon as the fast track process will be started, we have all
the documents already in place, ready to upload, submit, go through
the checks, and answer the questions. And also, we accept the
financial conditions which were presented earlier.

So what we do within the country for this project?

On November 2nd, which is next week, we start formal accreditation
of the registrars who will be accepting registrations for the dot rf,
which is the IDN for Russian Federation. Okay?

And on November 25th, we plan to open the priority registration for
the trademark owners who keep the trademarks in Cyrillic. It's a
very sensitive matter because we already are getting some letters
from big corporations worldwide, trademark protection bureaus and so
on, asking if they will be protected names for the Cyrillic. And we
checked with some legal people who were, you know, good known guys.
They said there is no -- there is no entity in the world who can
actually put a parallel between the Latin script and the Cyrillic
script, so we will be focusing exactly on the Cyrillic script
trademark. So if the trademark is not in Cyrillic, it will not be
protected.

So this period will be for the four months until 25th of March of
the next year, and we plan, on April 12th next year, to open the
auction in this new domain zone to keep the zone protected from the
cybersquatters and, you know, from the bulk registrations.

And we decided to go with the linear price, fixed price decrease
model, which runs as one day of, I don't know, like 10 million rubles
for one day and then, you know, a million rubles for one week, then
500,000 rubles for one week and so on and so forth. Between each
week, we'll have a one-day pass, you know, just to -- to deal with
some, you know, problems, if they exist, if they appear.

So we probably will be ready to -- for the open market price by the
June 14th of the next year, if everything goes according to the
previous schedule.

And this system of the registration based on the EPP has enhanced
security. It has special digital signatures on the time stamps to
avoid, you know, questionable who goes first, who goes last.

It also will support the stop-list for the offensive words which,
you know, the Russian language is very rich in this term, so --

And regarding the mass market estimation, how many domains will be
registered in our IDN, we don't know. All we know is like there are
millions of people around the world, 140 million in Russia and the
same in other countries, so it may go from, you know, 100,000 to 10
million very fast, but as this is a new project, no one can really
tell, and it's hard to do some preliminary estimations in this area.

That's it. Thank you

Re: russian rep at ccnso meeting

pretty damn interesting. It's party time, or looks like it will be by late Thursday in the US.

It looks like the Costello Twin will have to make this guy an offer he cannot understand.

A ha ha ha ha!

No TM protection for transliterations. There is going to be a rush of cyrillic TM applications by world corps. I wonder how long it takes for them to be processed? Will they be ready before the priority registration time expires?

Don't be daft. It will take them six months to work out how to insert the enema.

Re: russian rep at ccnso meeting

YES...

key line..

"So if the trademark is not in Cyrillic, it will not be
protected."

so there goes the generic name contingent theory...Costello Brothers etc..

but more important...
IBM, GE ...all corporations with Cyrillic Trademark names, but not Cyrillic Trademark abbreviations/ acronyms , they are not going to be processed in time if submitted now.

IP attorneys are in for a little 'clockwork orange' on that issue...
and the IRT cluster fuck relative to new GTLD's is irrelevant at the second level.

hahahahahahaha
( insert Dr. Evil and mini-me laugh track)

can't wait for the IDN market in Russia to have its own little LLLL.rf or
LLLL.KOM asset bubble ....

that should be fun from the sidelines...


CNNIC is already prepared and in market.........none of this March and April 2010 and sunrise / reserve bullshit....


It will be nice to see one of the oldtimer IDNer's get a big public payday for
a russian IDN dot com before the auction circus in Moscow starts...

grin

Steve
