    yeah I had no idea either. It is very interesting, surprised it's not been made into a film.

    I read the book.
    A great asset turned out to be a true nightmare for the owner of sex.com.

    BTW porn.com has reportedly been stolen and a WIPO is under way.

    It's a little old now, but if you think you'd enjoy reading about the history of domaining, this is worth a look http://thedomaingame.org/

    You can read the introduction (PDF format) here:
    http://www.goodreads.com/reader/28028-the-domain-game

    If you think that sounds interesting, the cheapest way to buy it new is in Kindle format:
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Domain-Game-David-Kesmodel-ebook/dp/B001BHECAU/

    (You can download a free Kindle reader for your PC or smartphone - you don't actually have to own a Kindle device to read Kindle books)

    I admit to a slight degree of bias as I am name-checked at one point in the book :)

    Edwin, the Domain game is a nice book.
    Even the veterans will learn a few interesting anecdotes :)

    It's just a couple of lines, blink and you'll miss it stuff. Still, I was pretty chuffed when I read it since I had no idea the author had put that in...
