Re: Sportsbook.mobi sells for $129k

Unbelieveable. First time i heard the word "sportsbook".

btw, i'm more curious of the TM aspect rather than the $129k price.

Took this from DS post. So does this mean that Sportsbook.mobi can be liable for trademark infringement?

Re: Sportsbook.mobi sells for $129k

What is obvious from DNJ is that this sales initially went down about 6 weeks ago. A lot has happened since then. The buyer who originally asked for Non-Disclosure appears to have had a change of heart. Perhaps, after wanting to keep the lid on prices, he too wants to try to resuscitate the Dot Mobi market now.

It is interesting to note that Bets.mobi is on Auction at Sedo with a day to go.

Current bid is $4,500. Reserve not met.

"Sportsbook" is the term used in virtually all of the Las Vegas casinos where you can wager on most every type of sport or competition imaginable. Most are set up as HUGE lounges with 100 or more TVs, big screens, couches, mini arena seating, and they show "live" events with horse racing probably being one of the biggest daily draws for viewers.

That is pocket change to some, maybe even an expense at year end to offset some taxes. I would not doubt if one of the Casino owners in Vegas is the buyer.

Re: Sportsbook.mobi sells for $129k

I'm trying so hard not to poke fun at the mobi crowd, but really they are not helping me very much.

some guy has NanoPhone.mobi up for appraisal.

and the other day I spotted mobi-realty.mobi ooo what a catchy name.

Has the extension been wiped out that badly - that this is all thats left, if so that is incredible. It took the .com years to get to that level of saturation.

yes lol and there also is the fact that noobs come into the game see a few .mobi sales decide to jump on the bandwagon with out any research in to what makes a good domain and start buying. i run into kids literally that buy all sorts of crap and think its worth something other than -19,999,999$
