Do you have an MIIT license? (new gTLDs)

Extract: "It was the Government's first attempt to declare its authority on any top-level domains' (or TLDs') right to do business in China. By far only 8 domestic companies and 14 TLDs were approved, including .TOP, .WANG, .CITIC and a few other Chinese-script TLDs. Popular extensions like .COM, .ORG or country codes like .CO or .ME were being asked to comply with the MIIT license requirement as well".
