Xinnet's free domain names violate rules

In order to motivate college students to use the Internet, Xinnet.com recently gave 10000 .bj.cn domain names to Chinese students, free of charge. But this altruistic move appears to have landed the company in trouble. According to the China Internet Network Information Center (CNNIC), individuals are not allowed to register sub-level .cn domain names. And so it seems that these domain names are about to be deleted...!
