China's commercial domain names should not cause conflict in US when "cn" is used

To follow up on a recent question about my domain name “doaskdotell” in China, it looks as though it’s an “apples and oranges” issue.
  
In China, the basic domain name for any commercial or generic site is “com.cn”, that is this
  
That means that any other functional domain name is really a subdomain name "www doaskdotell com cn".  The Chinese government actually controls these subdomains, and they apparently cannot be registered from US companies anyway.  So I don’t see any issue at all.
  
Try also the “.gov” link
