Domain Name Local.ly Sold For $100,000

http://techcrunch.com/2011/11/09/dom...ld-for-100000/




A small news item straight from left field, but who knew someone would eventually cough up a six-figure sum for a ‘Libyan’ domain name (one that ends in .ly)? Well, someone did, and that someone is enterprise applications and services company Infor, which acquired the domain name local.ly for $100,000.
The previous owner of local.ly, Hadi Naser of domain name registration and professional services company Libyan Spider, apparently owns several hundred such ‘premium’ .ly domains.
Conveniently, his company also runs a domain name brokerage service at domains.ly.
Back in 2010 Libyan Spider sold dai.ly for $17,000 to DailyMotion. Other ‘big’ .ly domain name sales include song.ly, which fetched a $50,000 price, and Facebook acquired friend.ly about a month ago.
The legal and technical advisor on the seller’s side for the local.ly deal was London-based agency Brands-and-Jingles. You have to wonder how much global.ly is worth.

This is a clever hack, because it is and it isn't.

However, you would have to say there is a risk of the new regime questioning the legality of current arrangements.

Re: Domain Name Local.ly Sold For $100,000

I just hope some of this money will go to find Gaddafi's murderers and justice will be served!!!! He was taken alive, I saw the video and then the video of his murder.

It's weird how there's this HUGE international outrage when the US killed bin Laden. But no one cares enough to find those that murdered Gaddafi, sodomized him with a knife, beat him, and uploaded the videos to the world.

I guess those people only care about justice when the US is behind something. Or it's just a pathetic excuse to rail on the US.

They have? Jeez, you stop using the Internet for even a week and miss out on everything.

Guess I need to google it.

Thanks Dave.
