i suppose when calculated together these two extension scraped in a measly $1m+ in gross revenue - I'de say the tax payer hasnt received any net gain from its implemnetation. More likely registrants in this space are still trying to figure out how best to utilise it. (way to restrictive to succeed) pays for the staff christmas party perhaps...lol
The two state governments would have blown many millions on this. Wouldn't surprised me if it was $5-10million each. Maybe someone can do an FOI request?
They have spent a lot promoting it, fees to the registry, Icann, staff costs. Imagine Boardman's salary, he was on the staff of .melbourne. The very frequent radio ads alone would have cost a fortune.
Ausregistry played this one very well indeed.
