Businesses Buying Up .x x x Domains To Protect Trademarks [pcworld.com]
Four out of five businesses that have preregistered .X X X domain names have no direct connection to the adult pron industry, one of the UK's largest registrars has confirmed.

Some domain names were issued for the basic registration fee and several others sold for well into six figures, immediately demonstrating the high value of .#*$! domain names. ...

The first .#*$! sites to go live after the July 31 close were www.casting.#*$! and www.orgasms.#*$! and were immediately greeted with good converting traffic with over 70 sign ups in the first 24 hours. Many more sites are expected to go live in the coming weeks. ...

"We expect to receive substantial type-in traffic with this new, content-specific TLD.” ...

ICM Registry had realized that an extremely high proportion of the top 200 adult keywords in the .COM space were in the hands of professional “domainers” and were being used for paid parking and/or pay-per-click advertising programs rather than for fully developed websites. ...

Frank Schilling, owner of possibly the world’s largest portfolio of domain names, had never previously participated in any other new TLD launch. However, Schilling excitedly negotiated a deal with ICM Registry for some premium generic domain names such as live.#*$!, hot.#*$! and free.#*$! in a seven figure deal out of the nearly $4 millionthat ICM Registry has received during this Founders program period. ...

With the close of the Founders program, ICM Registry is now focused on building a successful launch that starts on September 7 with the opening of the Sunrise A period.

I wonder if I'll get any typos to my .com name? :-)

will there be any premium names left when people like Frank Schilling get to pick the good apples before we even get a chance to take a look?

ICM Registry, the company behind the .#*$! top level domain (TLD), announced today that iFriends.#*$! and ClickCash.#*$! were launched by WebPower, making these the first high-profile webcam site and affiliate marketing program to launch in the .#*$! space... etc
ICM Registry is now focused on the launch that starts on September 7 with the opening of the Sunrise period. For more information, please visit www.about.#*$!
