A while ago we already posted a message informing you that the release of the co.no extension has been postponed until March 25th since Norid (Norwegian registry) had some extra questions regarding .co.no. On March 25th however, the release was postponed once more since the Norwegian registry hasn’t given their permission yet for the release of this extension. And at the moment, it doesn’t seem things will soon be changing.

The FBI has shut down the sites of PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker and Absolute Poker. Until now, it seems only the .com variants of those sites have been seized. Moreover several bank accounts were frozen (65 accounts in 14 different countries) and 11 people, including the owners of those sites, were indicted for fraud, the provision of illegal gambling and money laundering.
