I wonder if they will ban certain .us domain names. I can picture domains with words that could piss US citizens off. Whos gonna go and register a .US domain?
Are people going to register major cities, locations and tourists points. ie: LasVegas.us - chances are the domain watcher people already preregistered the stuff but is that the plans for SEO's and other webmasters too?
Ah in the nic.us Rules & Regulations PDF [nic.us] file they have a portion of the document titled Evidence of Registration or Use in Bad Faith which says you cant use the domain for the purpose of selling, renting, etc to the trademark holder of the name. Says you cant register if your purpose of registration is to confuse web surfers of a real business with that name. or if your gonna do a like design of the competiting website or use of purpose for it. heheh there goes the scouters. Theres a lot more info in that PDF ;) Read it heheh
NeuStar will follow a policy to preserve and enhance the value of the .US Internet address to all users, including in particular state and local governments and K-12 schools. Given the importance of .US as a national public resource certain guidelines must apply. Therefore, NeuStar will review, for possible deletion by the Registry, all second-level domain names that contain within the characters of the domain name registration one of the seven words prohibited for broadcast by the Federal Communications Commission. For more information on the "seven words," see Federal Communications Commission v. Pacifica Foundation, 438 U.S. 726, 98 S. Ct. 3026, 57 L.Ed.2d 1073 (1978).
