Affilias gives up on chinese .info at auction

https://newgtlds.icann.org/en/announ...t-3-04jun14-en

Quote:
Two applicants, Afilias Limited and Beijing Tele-info Network Technology Co., LTD. applied for the gTLD 信息, (xn--vuq861b), which is a Chinese Internationalized Domain Name (IDN) for "information" or "info." These two applicants were unable to resolve the contention set between themselves, and thus proceeded to an auction, which is the method of last resort to resolve string contentions as prescribed in Module 4 of the Applicant Guidebook. Beijing Tele-info Network Technology Co., LTD. prevailed in the auction for the winning price of $600,000. Additional bidding information is available in the auction report [PDF, 225 KB]. Subject to payment of the Winning Price and meeting all other criteria for eligibility, the winner will begin the contracting process to sign a Registry Agreement to operate the 信息, (xn--vuq861b) gTLD.

So there will be IDN.info(idn) but it won't be run by the same operator as the ascii .info?

ICANNT imagine a more messy and confusing internet landscape.

If these things are confusing to us, just imagine how confused regular internet users will be when they try navigating to these sites in the months and years to come. What a shame, what a tremendous fail in internet policy.

Not a translit, but a translation I believe.
