Companies that have registered, according to their flyer, are Intel, Coke, UPS ...etc.  Did some country sell their .cc delegation and now people are on a warpath to squat on domain names in .cc?  Is this a legitimate expansion of TLDN or just another way for us to squander money to the tune of $100/2years?  How is this going to impact the current root servers?

.cc is registered to the nation [?] of "Cocos (Keeling) Islands".  No
doubt enjoying a sudden revenue windfall.
