Leave it to the Genius to locate this stash! Good find.

Actually that's not the big stash.
They do own close to 80 MORE Japanese IDNs
I've seen them.
But they're owned & registered by Microsoft Japan...
They started registering them massively at the end of March....

For a search engine that's not even IDN compatible they do at least realize where everything is going to go...

Oh & the list I'm talking about is half com & jp...
I didn't look at the nets but they most likely own those too...

Well it took us a while but I'm glad someone listened. :)

By the way, I'm really amazed that we are being so proactive on typos for viva pinata. Our marketing group has it going on better than I thought. This game is really important for us.

It's a game for the xbox 360 that we are publishing later this year at Microsoft Game Studios. We have a big push to broaden the audience for our console and Viva Pinata is a game to spearhead that. It will also be a kids cartoon show on the 4kids! network this September.

Well I had him tagged. I think his answers to previous threads made it pretty transparent. Perhaps we should make an effort to be more Microsoft friendly around here.

Just hope Rhys isn't going to get into hot water over an addiction for registering IDNs.

Anyway when Bill wants the two Generics:

xn--cesv58a.cn 本地 Local (Bendi)
xn--lck0ge4d.jp ローカル Local

Just drop me a PM!

Is this list top secret or are we going to see it ?

I don't think Rhys has truly kept it a secret...if you had ever exchanged p.m's with him, or read his posts you caught on. We were propositioning him to be beta testers for their games way back when! No such luck- LOL

Actually, he's been quite the gentleman not to criticize any MS bashing, or praising. Opinions in all shapes and sizes are certainly welcomed here at IDNF.

My first thought on the Pinata was a funny joke representing the way Bill Gates probably feels sometimes! Figured maybe someone at MS had a funny sense of humor. Gates certainly has a tough job, no way to please everyone...and too many critics- but fortunately it pays well!

For all the trouble, they missed майкрософт.com

Yes, their strategy seems to be totally skewed. They have nailed down all the potential type-in before they have acquired the primary terms. Could it be that this is a prelude to negociations/Wipo?

Re: Bill Gates Ownes 83 IDN's .Com's !!!!!
 
Creation Date: 2006-05-17 ....... I know you read this forum.
майкрософт.com:

На самом деле не целесообразно регистрировать домены с торговыми знаками как майкрософт... по действующим правилам, Microsoft'у очень просто забрать их у Вас...

Удачи!

Oh the other domains...
I didn't write it yet huh?
I also didn't write it early in the month when I found it...

They own every Microsoft Product you can think of

Google Japan only owns like 2 IDNs
Yahoo has a bit maybe 6 to 10
MSN has close to 80

The pinata domains aren't very impressive. And the spoofing domains like microsōft.com are not very good examples of true IDN usage -- they were probably just confiscated from scammers.

So what about these 8 domains:

μσν.com

Can anyone translate them? Will MS actually be using these, or are they defensive registrations like the others?

Thx,

RJ
