Russia's biggest channel prime time:

Note how they are explaining type in on 00:51 using the example Table .rf
And explaining that by owning it and getting that type in traffic they bypass all the competition.

" the rules did not prohibit a registrar from creating a cabal of 6 other registries to buy and conduct secondary auctions .....
we're a registrar...we can't be a cybersquatter or conspiracy if all our purchases are public......right ???

I'm guessing that the parties will quietly settle before matters reach the courts. But if they don't, then it is possible that the highest-value .рф domains will be tied up in litigation until after .ком goes live. That would be interesting.

The concept of the market, and capitalism is still poorly understood in Russia.

I noticed that even on domain forums people complain about people making a profit.

Re: .РФ Domains Deactivated

The more anyone waits, the deeper they will have to dig.

Now in addition to the festival of lawsuits / war zone, add companies who are making complaints directly to the Government officials handling this (фас), like this one in example:

http://www.abireg.ru/?idnews=13507&newscat=23 (They are basically saying that they're company's name is a word they made up and they are not happy it made the auctions and not awarded to them...

And in addition to the special 'hotline' cctld.ru started today for .рф related concerns.

Cyrillic Websites Embroiled in Legal Row

Cyrillic web domains are set to be frozen amid concerns that many of the .рф sites sold this month have been bought by profiteers. The initial sale of the first public Russian-language domains was hailed as a huge success, with organisers saying demand had far outstripped expectations.

But yesterday tech group RU-CENTER was ordered to halt auctions after a rash of cases over illegal cyber-squatting and attempts to inflate prices for popular domain names, RIA Novosti reported. The domains will be frozen, preventing the buyers from creating their own sites or selling them on at a profit. RU-CENTER said there are no plans to stop sales, with spokesman Andrei Vorobyov saying: “We do not believe we have violated the law or the rules of the co-ordinating centre.”

But at the end of last week the Federal Anti-Monopoly Service (FAS) launched legal action against six registrars from the agency, claiming they had broken competition laws. The auctions were set-up with a condition that successful bidders could not transfer the site for at least 12 months, in a bid to prevent so-called cyber-squatting.

Cyber-squatting is a common online money-making technique where speculators try to buy up domain names which they think will have a high resale value. Names involving sex and pornography are popular targets, as are names which refer to major companies and institutions.

RU-CENTRE got into trouble after the first Cyrillic domains went on sale on Nov. 11. On its own it bought 38 per cent of the names, and through partner companies the group acquired 48 per cent of the .рф hosts. And Vedomosti reported that the FAS is unhappy with the deals RU-CENTER has brokered with its partners and is following complaints from both users and rival registrars. END ARTICLE

False. Cyber-squatting is the buying of domain names which contain the names which are the intellectual property of others.

Here's a nice quote on cyber-squatting by Andrei Kolesnikov, head of the Coordination Center (the .рф registry), taken from an interview in Kommersant:

Quote:
Регистрация про запас не есть нарушение закона и это даже не киберсквоттерство. Вообще точное определение киберсквоттерства — это захват чужого имени для того, чтобы потом шантажировать владельца и вытягивать из него деньги. Но когда ты массово регистрируешь домены типа "стул.рф", "дом.рф", "погода.рф", то по сути ты не киберсквоттер. Ты просто профессионально занимаешься доменным бизнесом: закупаешь домены, чтобы потом перепродать. Поэтому важно делать различия.
Edited Google translation:

Quote:
Registering names in reserve is not a violation of the law and is not even cyber-squatting. A precise definition of cyber-squatting is registering another's name in order to blackmail the owner and extract money from him. But when you're massively registering domains such as "стул.рф" (chair), "дом.рф" (house), "погода.рф" (weather), then in essence you are not a cybersquatter. You're just a professional in the domain business: you buy domains in order to resell them later. It is therefore important to make the distinction.
Apparently the Russian press doesn't understand the distinction; for that matter, neither does the press in the rest of the world.

It is, however, the legal definition of cybersquatting in the United States.

Re: .РФ Domains Deactivated

From a notice on RU-CENTER's website (this is the registrar at the center of the auction controversy):

Quote:
Соглашением об аккредитации предусмотрен порядок разрешения конфликтных ситуаций. В соответствии с ним, в понедельник, 29 ноября 2010 года, в 15.00 в Координационном центре должна начать работу согласительная комиссия, а вечером пройдет очередное заседание Совета КЦ, на котором планируется рассмотрение, среди всего прочего, вопроса о начале открытой регистрации доменов .РФ.
Edited Google translation:

Quote:
The Accreditation Agreement provides a procedure for the resolution of conflict situations. In accordance with this, on Monday, November 29, 2010, at 15.00 in the Coordination Center the conciliation commission is supposed to begin work, and that evening there will be a regular meeting of the Council of the Coordination Center, which will consider, among other things, the question of the beginning of open registration of .РФ domains.
If I understand this correctly, RU-CENTER hopes that the auction situation will be resolved Monday evening.
