In a previous post we said the following on the restrictive natureof some ccTLDs:
"If these ccTLDoperators do not relax certain restrictions it could stifleInternet investment resulting in the loss of a potentiallylucrative revenue stream for those countries as well as potentiallybeing ignored by the Internet community when the newgTLDs are released.
We believe the IP community needs to debate domain name issues moreactively to encourage registries to change restrictivepolicies."
We now learn that on 6 November 2008 the Slovenian registry(ARNES) will relax itsregistration rules.
These new rules will remove the current restrictions and allowanyone to register .si domain names (including foreign companiesand persons). There will also be no restriction on the number ofdomains that may be registered by registrant.
We would like to believe that ourpost was instrumental in bringing about this change butnevertheless we welcome this move by ARNES and encourage otherccTLD operators to follow a similar route.
