Good for you Katie,

I'm sure Mecklermedia would be interested  in the same name but my not
have the stomach for it give the state of the .com industry. I'd hope
they would have a trademark on it though ;-)

Whether you end up with it or not you will need deep pockets, if not for
legal certainly for developing. I've trying to get something happening
with Family.com.au for quite some time but VC is very thin on the ground
these days. 

Good luck 

Regards
Jim Stewart

As I understood it generics were rejected as they represented industries
or bodies as a whole in a similar way to geographical names and not
because of any commercial focus. Auctions may be fair in a commercial
sense however do they conflict with the existing policy.

As a hypothetical.

I run a large adult retail chain whose primary sales was through the
internet and whose registered name is Australian Sex Shop on the
Internet. My business has been runnibg for 10 years and I am very rich.
I am eligible to apply for internet.com.au which I do and successfully
bid for. I believe the price is worth it as the generic domain will
drive traffic to my site.

Does this represent internet.com.au for 'what it is'?
I can also apply and bid for australian.com.au
