Fm.ly Launches Family Network in SA (allAfrica.com)
A new online service has been established in SA, guaranteeing users
their own surnames as permanent domains.
The service, Fm.ly, launched in SA last week and expects to roll-out
internationally early this year.
LY is the country code for Libya and the Fm.ly Web site is a
second-level domain registered in that country.

Times)
Growth in Internet domain names slowed considerably last year as
speculators who hoped to make a fortune off easy-to-remember Web
addresses dropped names they couldn't unload.

COURT RULES SETTLEMENT BARRED UDRP ACTION
A NY federal court has potentially put the dispute over the cello.com
domain to rest.  In the late 1990s, the cello.com owner and Cello
Holdings settled a dispute over the domain, only to have Cello
Holdings launch a UDRP action which it surprisingly won.  The UDRP
decision resulted in further lawsuits with the NY court now ruling
that the settlement barred bringing the UDRP action.  In fact, the
judge was so annoyed with Cello Holdings that he ordered sanctions
against the company.  Case name is Storey v. Cello Holdings (SDNY).
