Domain Name Registration and Intellectual Property in
Vietnam (reg req'd)
Registration of domain names under the country code top
level domain dot.VN in Vietnam has increased significantly
since the new regulation on the management and use of
Internet in Vietnam (Decision No. 92/2003/QD-BBCVT) was
issued by the Ministry of Post and Telematics of Vietnam
last May 2003. In an attempt to help boosting e-commerce in
Vietnam, the new regulation provides simple procedures for
registration of domain names and the internet authority
(which is the Vietnam Internet Center ("VNNIC") under the
Ministry of Post and Telematics) would act very fast in
processing applications.

IP or NAT IP: Mostly IP
There seems to be a heated debate on this site about NAT
(network-address translation). What came as a surprise to
me is that a lot of the arguments seem to reside in
