    The .co.uk owner has 5 years in which to register the .uk, at the end of that time, if they haven't, it then becomes available for anyone else to register it.

    So my next job is to harvest a list of the top 10,000 domains and try and bag the .uk 5 years from now?

    In five years you might not be working in domain names. What's your backup?:p

    Unlikely.

    5 years is a long time in domain terms.

    Either .uk will have caught on well before then, in which case it's crazy to expect a top .co.uk owner to go without the "better" extension. Not to mention that anything decent and generic is likely to result in a deluge of "expressions of interest" aimed at the rights-holder as the 5 year deadline approaches.

    Or it won't have caught on in any major way, and .co.uk is still very firmly king, in which case why will anyone care?
