Stolen domain names : The ethics of brokering stolen assets

Domain names have been stolen since the early days of the commercial Internet. The most known case involves the hijacking of Sex.com, a domain that was “milked” for its traffic, before it was returned via a court order to its registrant.

Domain registrants are not landlords

Every time I hear how domains are exactly like real estate, I shake my head at the dissimilarities. Comparing domains and domain investing to real estate and landlords is a convenient choice.
