    Cyprus based registry upstart DotMusic Ltd has confirmed that has secured the rights to the .music gTLD.

    Founder and CEO Constantinos Roussos tweeted the news overnight.

    It is not known how much DotMusic paid for the string, which I believe was auctioned in late March.

    DotMusic fought off competition from seven other applicants, including some heavy-hitters: Google, Amazon, Donuts, Radix, Far Further, Domain Venture Partners and MMX.

    MMX’s application was the last to be withdrawn, last night.

    It’s not impossible that .music could launch before the end of the year, after DotMusic has completed the remaining pre-delegation steps such as signing its ICANN registry contract.
