What are China's Real Intentions on Bougainville?
On Friday, November 19th, 2010 the following email reached the European Shareholders of Bougainville Copper (ESBC):
"This is a Network Service Company which is the domain name registration center in Hong Kong, China. On November.16, 2010, we received an application from MEIHUA Group requested "bougainville-copper" as their internet keyword and China (CN) domain names. But after checking ,we find this name is conflict with your company's name or trademark. In order to deal with this issue better, it's necessary to send this email to you and confirm with your company whether this company is your distributor or business partner in China? If you did not authorize, please let us know within 7 workdays, so that we will handle this issue better. "
Why is a giant Chinese industrial group so much interested in acquiring the name of "Bougainville Copper" for their own purpose? Why are they contacting the European Shareholders of Bougainville Copper and not our company itself or even better: Rio Tinto? What are the true intentions of this MEIHUA Group? Many questions.
The European Shareholders of Bougainville Copper asked these questions to Linda Wang from Hong Kong China Technology Ltd, a domain provider, but did not get any response until now.
