    Yeah, perhaps they’re planning ahead. For instance, amazon grabbed amazon.com.au in anticipation of a later local expansion.

    Though keep in mind that in AU you can’t buy a .com.au domain unless you own the matching registered business name or company name. So it’s not like anybody could have come along and grabbed itunes.com.au and squatted on it.

    Intriguingly, I notice someone bought google.net.au. Now there’s a lawsuit waiting to happen.
