    Our goverment (Russian) is driving me crazy!

    <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>The State Duma has approved in the first reading the amendment to the law on the trade marks, essentially complicating procedure of registration of domains. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

    Now, if you want to have a domain, such as "yourname.ru", and use it as long as you wish (or money limit). You need to have a registered trade mark! Or in other way, every company, which wish to register domain with your name (because them trade mark is coincides with your domain) can do that absolutly legally!

    P.S. I'm sorry for my bad english.

    So surely all people are going to do is register domains other than .ru?

    I think yes. The RUIP (The Russian Union of Internet Providers) considers, that such decision will result to that people begin to buy to the domain from the foreign companies more, than at domestic.

    It sounds similar to the Australian domain regulations where you have to be a registered business to use a .com.au domain and they charge like wounded bulls for the privilege!
