Singapore's attempt to trademark .sg, which had been put on hold has now been put on ice, according to a story by Sai Man of Dow Jones News Service.
The article states that on Friday, the Singapore Network Information Centre (SGNIC), a government department, issued a statement that it "would not be necessary to proceed" with the trademark application, in part because of ICANN's Governmental Advisory [sic] Committee (GAC) having "put in place clearer policies
governing the use of domain names."
The Dow Jones article also quotes an official as explaining,
"It is a good way for this to end. There was an adverse public reaction and SGNIC would have faced (the risk) of going (against) the opposition and not overcoming it."
