    Was the ’6 month rule’ [prevented the sale of a newly registered domain name until the expiration of 6 months from the date of registration] abolished in November or not?
    I'm new to the industry and this is very unclear to me.
    Thanks.

    :) And I can not edit it. Let it be '6 moths' then.
    So the '6 moths rule' is not there any more and I can buy a com.au and sell it straight away?
    Thanks.

    Ermm ... you can't register for the sole purpose of resale. So try not to be Captain Obvious and you'll be ok.

    Good point that Brett raises.

    This was discussed in depth on this thread: http://www.dntrade.com.au/approaching-end-users-sell-au-t4347.html
