.РФ will be taken away from you by the registrar.

http://www.vedomosti.ru/newspaper/ar...spornye_domeny

The largest Russian registrar (Ru Center) will take your .РФ domain away if a TM holder or a company with a similar name is claiming it. The kicker is that no court/legal procedure is needed and it will be up to the registrar to decide. So, as a Russian domainer/webmaster trying to capitalize on a demand for native URLs, you are pretty much screwed.

If only there were a cyrillic domain where a domain holder has some legal rights and protection from such unlawful behavior...oh wait, there is one... .ком

555 why again? when did the light ever turn green? I think after june 20 it will start changing to greenish and should be green after Verisign or who ever confirms the allising of .kom to .com and .HET to .net. imho.

I think we have two 'lights' in mind.

I care about one and i think it has been green for more then 10 years: No one but the registrant of пример.com will get to activate free or otherwise пример.ком and if that iyo is not 'green' after numerous verifications from numerous official sources including ICANN and Verisign then please explain why.

The only thing we don't have is an exact date but what's more important, the exact date or the bottom line? Some waited for 11+ years, they can wait a couple months more.

We don't have to go there and it's not at all personal with you Dkto, i just think at this point many see what's up and prefer to keep the uncertain levels up rather then face facts.

Re: .РФ will be taken away from you by the registrar.

There was obviously a huge interest in .РФ domains as evidenced by both the number of registrations as well as the "secondary" closed auctions (http://базадоменов.рф/сделки/). The point of the latest news is to reinforce the thesis that at the end of the day, given the legal/country risks, .ком domain will command a higher price than its equivalent in .РФ. In other words, given the choice, the end-user will choose цветы.ком vs цветы.рф.

I hear you 555. Maybe it has to do with a fact that i am colorblind.
