    Amazon has pulled out of the fight for the .music gTLD, and I’m ready to call the race.

    In full knowledge that this could be my “Dewey Defeats Truman” moment, it seems to me the balance of evidence right now is strongly pointing to a win for DotMusic over sole remaining rival bidder MMX.

    The contention set originally had eight applicants, but six — Google, Donuts, Radix, Far Further, Domain Venture Partners and last night Amazon — have withdrawn over the last week or so.

    This is a sure sign that the battle is over, and that the rights to .music have been auctioned off.
