Somali domains up for grabs

The Republic of Somalia doesn't often feature in Afro Leo's reports, but there is some news from that sadly troubled corner of the Continent -- it's the relaunch of Somalia's .so country code as an unrestricted ccTLD. It is proposed to offer the following:
.so – general purposes
com.so – commercial entities
net.so – network use
org.so – not for profit organisations
The planned sunrise period for trade mark proprietors, assignees and licensees is 1 to 30 November, with an auction (1 to 15 December) to take place if two more more eligible trade mark holders seek the same domain.  The Landrush period runs from 16 December to 9 February 2011, with an auction from 10 to 28 February where two or more credible applications are made for the same domain.
