Who Shall Own .China or .Arabia?

Interesting read.

I am a little worried about this:

Ram said he is leaning toward additions of new non-English domains to the root zone out of fairness to newcomers. But on the other hand he also said: ”The thing that would bother me is we spend four or five years working on developing what effectively becomes a famous brand name and then someone comes and says, ‘I own the language, therefore I shall take over.’”

thanks a lot for sharing that article with us! it was a really interesting one. i have always thought the fact internet didnt grow faster in asia was the language barrier, before IDN i think there was a need for an old japanese woman, lets say, to know english a little bit to use the internet. too many english words. i also believe the increase in the use of katakana word is also related to the "english" internet
