Interesting article. Anywhere I can read more on?

Thanks!
The matter isn't as simple as that, people have paid millions to tens of million dollars for country domains, and there must be at least 200 USA cities, and another 10,000 cities world wide in private hands, some developed websites and even businesses listed on the stock exchange. The most prominent is China.com, listed on Nasdaq.
