Foreign speculators also registered ビズ.com (Biz.com), ビズ.net and ビズ.jp in 2006.

The real answer is a lot simpler.
Most of the Japanese registrars out there decided to put the order of gTLDs on offer as com net org biz

so what happened is com and net are taken, org only accepts Kanji, so next stop is .biz

you can see an example registrar here if you scroll down to the list of extns: http://onamae.com/service/?btn_g=do00

It's nice to see her sound excited. It's also interesting that she pastes a screenshot to educate visitors how to type in her IDN.
