    ICANN, the organization that oversees domain names, has authorized a new top level domain targeted at mobile devices. The new top level domain (or TLD) is .mobi and will be open for general use and registrations on August 28, 2006. There is alreadly limited registrations allowed for those that can prove they have a trademark in the domain (i.e. hopefully for Microsoft, they have already grabbed

    Even though early registration is being allowed for trademark holders, I am sure that many big brands will fail to grab their trademarks for .mobi and will be quickly filing domain arbitration complaints to recover “their” domains. WIPO and the National Arbitration Forum should be ramping up staff to handle the inevitable increase in filings.

    AOL to move towards free services I saw this article this morning which discusses anticipated moves by America Online to offer access to users that obtain their Internet access from a third party (most commonly through broadband I would say) provider for services and features for which they have previously charged a fee. Given the dramatic exodus of their dial up subscibers over the last couple of years, this move is not surprising (they’ve lost more than a third of their customer base in the last three years).

    I’m sure the underlying strategy is that AOL can still capture ad revenue from users that will prevent dramatic decreases in revenue from dial up defectors. I would also assume that AOL will focus more on leveraging Time Warner content properties in premium-access-for-a-fee packages. If you’re a content provider it’s probably a good time to approach AOL for a deal – just be aware that they’ll probably be looking for some level of exclusivity.
