    The hard-fought battle for .music appears to be over.

    I’m not yet in a position to tell you which of the eight applicants for the new gTLD has been successful, but I can tell you some of those who were not.

    Two applicants have this week withdrawn their bids, an almost certain sign that the contention set has been privately settled.

    The first applicant to ditch its bid was dot Music Ltd, an application vehicle of Domain Venture Partners (we used to call this outfit Famous Four Media, but that’s changed).

    The other is .music LLC, also known as Far Further.

    We can almost certainly expect all but one of the remaining applicants to withdraw their applications over the coming days.
