In a clear display of government authoritarianism, police in Beijing, China, arrested a domain investor last week.
Xiao Ping Guo, a Chinese domain investor from Shanghai, was taken to the local police station for interrogation.
The official charges:
“Registration of domain names that do not conform to the Pinyin protocol and ethics, in accordance to the laws and regulations of the People’s Republic of China.”
In other words, Xiao Ping Guo acquired some “non-premium” LLLL .com domains, with Western letters and vowels.
“Such criminal activity, bad for progress China, and must educate for citizens understand strong China use letter no AEIOUV,” said a government official.
“We proud China, best language and letter Pinyin or no register domain approval,” added the Chinese government official.
It is not yet clear what type of punishment will be delivered to Xiao Ping Guo, who briefly expressed his remorse for violating the rules of the Chinese government, while being escorted in shackles to an undisclosed location for further interrogation. He might be facing 20 years in prison.
Chinese domain investors should always use the following 20 letters only, when acquiring or registering domain names: B,C,D,F,G,H,J,K,L,M,N,P,Q,R,S,T,W,X,Y,Z.
