Someone doesn't like Tencent in China. 腾讯.cn Good news for Chinese .net holders.

I was reading up on chinese news and what's going on and I came upon an article about instant messaging in China and the big companies there. Anyways I came upon "Tencent" and decided to check them out. I found out their name in Chinese and just looked quick at the url. http://腾讯.cn . It goes to another popular instant messenger. They must not like Tencent.

Whois query:

http://seal.cnnic.cn/queryserver?ent...%2Fqueryserver

Tencent actually sits on the .net. http://腾讯.net

Quote:
Tencent QQ, generally referred to as QQ, is the most popular free instant messaging computer program in Asia, and the world’s third most popular IM service [1]. The program is maintained by Tencent Holdings Limited (HKSE: 0700), owned in part by Naspers.[2] Since its entrance into Chinese households QQ quickly emerged as a modern cultural phenomenon, now being portrayed in popular culture. Aside from the chat program, QQ has also developed many subfeatures including games, pets, ringtone downloads, etc.
Quote:
The original name of QQ was OICQ (believed to have either meant Open ICQ or Oh, I seek you).
Info from Wikipedia on Tencent

Second if it was Tencent it wouldn't be sitting on an ICQ page. Their legal battles have gone back a long time it appears.

Aol won defending their ICQ trademark taking those domains away from Tencent this was in 2000.

3. I can't even find a whois query for 腾讯.com for some reason. Nor does it resolve to a page.

Well there is conflicting evidence from CNNIC then. Or I am living in an alternate universe but this goes to an ICQ page.
http://腾讯.cn

And the whois query from cnnic is Whois query:

http://seal.cnnic.cn/queryserver?ent...%2Fqueryserver

Not to mention. Am I crazy or does this go to ICQ? http://腾讯.cn That's definately not something that Tencent would do.

Re: Someone doesn't like Tencent in China. 腾讯.cn Good news for Chinese .net holders.

My feeling is that CNNIC whois is not updated. Some TM names are still shown the info of a specific company that the name was originally reserved for.

ie, I own a domain xxyan.cn (Chinese), but the CNNIC whois still shows "xxyan co" is the owner (2000-2011). Very strange.
