China's Internet Domain Services "Hijacks" US Company Names to Force them to sign with .CN
MEMPHIS TN (IFS) -- With a strong presence on the WWW, China's aggressive marketing campaign toward United States known companies to sign with them is very different from the marketing techniques of the old days. China's IDS tell known US companies that their business names are being registered in China. As for SDC Omnimedia Group, a holly owned subsidiary of Smith Data Communications which was started in 1971 by Kenneth Howard Smith. It was in 2012 that then Google offered $250 MIllion for the company that included D-Town Records and its' software development units of Infotronics USA and Coleman Kestin and Smith Software that lead early into the MIDI and flatbed scanner markets in the 1980s., with their breakthrough EsBASE Systems, Check-Mate Systems, SOS Computers and Smith Micro-Systems. SDC's market focus in 2012 to the present has been in radio playlist development and digital streaming.

Dear Kenneth Howard Smith，
Based on your company having no relationship with them, we have already advised them to choose another name, but they insist on this name as China domain names ( sdcomnimedia.cn/ sdcomnimedia.com.cn/ sdcomnimedia.net.cn/ sdcomnimedia.org.cn) and internet keyword. In our opinion, maybe they do the similar business as your company then register it to promote his company.
As is known to all, domain name registration based on the international principle is opened to company and individual. Any company or individual have the right to register any domain name and internet keyword which are unregistered. Your company haven't registered this name as China domains and internet keyword, so anyone is able to obtain them by registration. But in order to avoid this conflict, the trademark or original name owner have priority to register China domain name and internet keyword during our review period. If your company is the original owner of this name and wants to register these China domain names ( sdcomnimedia.cn/ sdcomnimedia.com.cn/ sdcomnimedia.net.cn/ sdcomnimedia.org.cn) and internet keyword to prevent anybody from using them, we can send you an application form with price list to help your company register these China domains and internet keyword during our review period.
