No surprise there. Everyone with a well-known name registers it in every new GTLD. That's why the trademark lawyers hate new domains.


The real questions are whether the early registrants will use the domains they grab, and whether there will be other registrants once the rush is over. Dot travel had the same rush, but nearly all of the domains there I check like yahoo.travel and google.travel aren't active.
