The rumor has already run a long time ago and something was confirmed to us for someone next to the file, into the Tunisia "Carthage Palace" corridors. It was influenced, for sure, by the example of its Sweden, Belgium and also Spanish neighbors. The .Fr Registry would foresee a biggest opening. Though details will have to define, it seems that companies -only they at the moment- would be able to register any chain of characters in .fr. This true "Cultural Revolution", should be confirmed by the AFNIC Counsel of Administration before this be done into the first days of November. You have to go on !
