In this video, Brad Fallon of FreeInlineReport.com reports on ICANN’s decision to remove the five trial period of owning a domain name. Brad notes that the decision followed Google’s move to block AdSense from websites less than five days old.

From the video notes on YouTube:

Following Google’s decision last week to block AdSense from web sites less than five days old, it looks like ICANN is removing the five day trial period for owning a domain name. This would stop the practice that was abused by “Domain Tasters” — people who take out a name for four days, put up Google ads, collect the money from the ads, and then cancel the name before they have to pay for it.
