Chinese IDN breaks record?? 央视一套.NET fetches US$100 000

(I apologise if this report is a hoax, I didnt further follow the case.)

In short, a Shanghainese buys back name (央视一套.NET) from a foreign invester for $100K and gives it to the authority for free.

“当初这个域名的开价为2万美金,没想到因‘央视一套’商标事件,对方开出10万美金,好在有朋友的支持,最终我还是决定把这个域名买下来。”何先生表示,赠送这个域名给央视..."

Even if a hoax, such news is good for driving interest up.

I think he registered the name and lied he bought it.

People in China like to use "news" for advertising.

Re: Chinese IDN breaks record?? 央视一套.NET fetches US$100 000

That's a good one Giant

It's too late for me

But I can image the headline

Famous Foreign actor in Tokyo shows his dedication to his host country by buying up
traditional Japanese domains to make sure they are used with pride.

Please support AdultVideo.com, Transvestites.com, BigBooties.com, EroticGames.jp, BikiniIdols.com
& if you are feeling under the weather
cold.jp

Doesn't seem likely does it ?

a mediocre name, a .net and a mister. x who claims to be the chinese Robin Ehood...

Like Giant said, and it's not a sole chinese treat, it's most likely a publicity stunt.

This IDN was registered for the "first" time just 3 days ago, 8-1-06.
I think Giant is probably right.

My translator says 央视一套 is "closed circuit television set".

Re: Chinese IDN breaks record?? 央视一套.NET fetches US$100 000

Well, you know what they say, any news is good PR.

If it had been a .cn, i would have thought yes another .cn conspiracy.

but for it to be a .net; this is good news for us.

hoax or not people are talking about it... and thats whats important.

And if it is a hoax and is uncovered, imagine all the bad press that will follow.

Yes, it might be seen as a smoke screen, but there is no smoke without fire!

What i'm saying is that the IDN market is still at its infancy so nothing that undermines the true "brand" of IDN will be bad publicity. The IDN community should really be "Anything I can get" in terms of a PR standpoint... get them people excited, get them people buying. Better that they know than not.

Everything I've read about China says to me that "they'd" be quite happy if everyone uses idn.cn and nobody knew about idn.com and idn.net

I imagine this news has woken a few people from hypnosis, that now realise that IDN isn't just .cn

it all good
