Nope. It has not been approved.

I didn't think that it had, but if you go to www.new.net, some of the .xxx names have already been taken (or so it says). How is this possible? I didn't see an "about" page at new.net, so maybe I just missed the point of the site, but if they're not available then you shouldn't be able to get them.

new.net isn't real domain names. They sell fake domain names that only work on PCs with their software installed. The catch is that if icann approves a similar extension all the new.net names using it will stop working.

Oh, I see. Thanks for clearning that up Chris.

Yeah, there are other sites "selling" them too. Right now, none of that is guaranteed.
