Still No Land Grab For New Internet Domains?

Extract: "It’s been nearly a year since a whole set of spanking new Internet domain names first came to market. These names —which in technical circles are called “generic top-level domains” or gTLDs — were just becoming available in January 2014, when a regulatory change opened the door to these fresh extensions — snazzy end-tags like .apple, .guru, .pizza, .bike, and .singles — which were added to the familiar existing domain suffixes — like .com, .net, .org, and .edu. At that time, I took a stab here in Forbes at what consequences might follow from the instant creation of all this new digital real estate".
