Will overstock.com own o.com?

by Frank Michlick in Categories: ICANN / Policy, Up to the Minute

After much lobbying by overstock.com (amongst others) ICANN has now started a comment period in order to find the best way to make the remaining single letter/digit domains available in gTLDs.

To be considered by ICANN, ideas on potential allocation methods should be submitted no later than 23:59 UTC, 15 November 2007 to allocationmethods@icann.org. Comments may be viewed on the ICANN site.

Oprah would snag O.com for her monthly magazine named O!

I tried petitioning ICANN back in 1994 to release the rest of these (they’d already handed out x.com and x.org).

I even trademarked “b.com” and used it as my trading name, in case they did release them – then I would have a solid claim to it.
