Internet & Networking "GoDaddy.com Inc., the world's largest domain name registration company, told lawmakers Wednesday that it will cease registering Web sites in China in response to intrusive new government rules that require applicants to provide extensive personal data, including photographs of themselves. The rules, the company believes, are an effort by China to increase monitoring and surveillance of Web site content and could put individuals who register their sites with the firm at risk. The company also believes the rules will have a "chilling effect" on new domain name registrations."

China's move will put alot of domain squatters out of work. GoDaddy will help to protect these squatters' jobs ;-p

However, I will not be surprise if these domain squatters work for GoDaddy ;-p
