Re: 尼康.世界 $6800

Does this look like a serious end-user purchase? Doubt it. More likely someone regged this huge trademark and tried to sell it to the TM holder. Otherwise I don't see why Nikon Corporation would have to pay someone to use their mark.

Maybe Nikon figured it would cost more going the UDRP route. Im betting $6800 to them is chump change and not even worth the time. Regardless, +1 point for the idn community

Strangely, lookup only works with punycode.

And yes, the current owner is serious:

Many large corporations have teams monitoring extensions for trademark infringements. Under the new gTLDs there are trademark squatters registering very obvious TMs and offering them for sale for $xxxx knowing that most of these attempts will fail but in a few cases the TM holder will buy the name directly. Usually the TM holder will want the domain regardless of the extension and good lawyers can be expensive.

Sometimes the domain owner will even contact the TM holder directly and offer the domain for sale.

Quote:
Finally, the Complainant contends that the Respondent registered and is using the disputed domain name in bad faith. In particular, it results from the Complainant's undisputed allegations that the Respondent offered the Complainant the disputed domain name for sale via phone and combined this offer for sale with the proposal to further "register all domain names that a relevant to your brand for your company on time" for a "service fee of € 2000 / month". Additionally, the Complainant has filed further evidence from which it undisputedly results that the Respondent publicly offered the disputed domain name for sale also on an online auction platform for a minimum prize of € 25,000 and a "buy-it-now" prize of € 80,000.
"I will squat on your TMs for a low $2000/month."

尼康.com.cn is available for $6.99

http://whois.icann.org can be used to perform lookup with Unicode form of 尼康.世界

Re: 尼康.世界 $6800

尼康.公司 and 尼康.网络 owned by Nikon but not in use. What's even stranger is that fact that their chinese website is nikon.com.cn (not surprising) but at the same time they did not bother to buy 尼康.com.cn for regfee while spending money on some fringe extension.

It's only a question of time before someone registers 尼康.com.cn and asks a lot of money for it. Then they would either have to pay a lawyer or buy it back.

Doubt that anyone here would register .世界 domains.
