Amazon Fights fRain Forrest Now China) Over dotAmazon

Jeff Bezos should have bought the rianforest and preserved it over China who is buying it to make fuel from trees.

Reap what you sow, Jeffy boy.

From Fast Company:

THE RETAIL GIANT WANTS THE .AMAZON DOMAIN NAME, BUT THE BRAZILIAN AND PERUVIAN GOVERNMENTS SAY THE DOMAIN SHOULD DIRECT THE PUBLIC TO INFORMATION RELATED TO THE AMAZON BASIN, SUCH AS RAINFOREST CONSERVATION.

As the reality of new domain names on the web like .donuts, .apple, and .tattoos inches closer, Amazon wants to make sure .amazon is there to represent the retail giant's various products and services.

Amazon has applied to the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, the U.S.-based cyberspace governance nonprofit, to register .amazon as its own generic top-level domain, or gTLD. But its request is ruffling feathers within the Brazilian and Peruvian governments, which have both filed objections with ICANN claiming the .amazon domain should be devoted to promoting public interest causes related to the Amazon region of South America--issues such as environmental protection and indigenous rights.
