finally reg it .... does it worth

I have been trying to register this IDN in the past 2 days and I couldn't go through then I emailed domainsite about it with no reply. may be due to domainsite was down many times or so. anyway I tried today and I succeeded at the end.

the domain is

サンヨー.com

it has 74,234 jp OVT and 30 US OVT

Does it worth the efforts I made?

It alliterates to 'sun yaw'according jim green's dictionary and it seems
that it officially represents Sanyo so I would leave it alone .

It's the name of a multi-billion-dollar company, who probably have dozens of lawyers on staff, ready to attack you for registering it. Bad move, in my view...

If they are so big and bad, why didn't they register it first?

rhys is an unknown quantity at this point
Re: finally reg it .... does it worth

The sunny side of the mountains versus the cloudy side of the mountains. Sanyo means the sunny side, I know because I used to live on the cloudy side.

I think that no one registers IDNs right now because in most companies there really isn't anyone in charge of IDNs in any official capacity.

Re: finally reg it .... does it worth

Yes, I think it's a big mistake to assume "not yet registered = no interest". Probably 99.9% of even the largest companies have nobody working there who's heard of IDNs yet. Doesn't mean they wouldn't take a keen interest IF they knew what IDNs were - it's just not on the radar screen generally yet...

Let us know how they respond, it will not be the last time a brand name is registered in good faith.

the problem is that they won't understand what I am talking about especially when they see the punycode

by the way the dot net サンヨー.net is registered since 2003 may be by a japanese man .... I cann't figure from the person name

I will let you know if they answered
