Product Description
Almost everyone has heard a tale of someone getting rich by selling an Internet domain name for a staggering price. But few understand the secretive world of domain investing, a game that a growing number of people are playing around the globe. The Domain Game chronicles the exploits of leading domain investors and explains how this mysterious market works. Learn how an Oklahoma watermelon farmer wound up owning some of the world's most valuable Web addresses, from recipes.com to chairs.com, and how a college dropout became a multimillionaire by scooping up domains that others abandoned amid the dot-com bust. Find out how the rise of Google and Yahoo has helped boost the fortunes of domain investors. And explore the shenanigans of investors who snag names associated with corporate trademarks. Finally, read how you can jump into this exciting market with a relatively small initial investment. It's a market with high risk, but huge potential reward. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Good Read, *Terrible* Kindle Formatting
If I'd read this book in print, I'd likely rate it a 3.5.The content is solid.It's a great introduction to the world of owning a domain portfoio, well research & well written.I read this book on the Kindle, and simply format, the formatting is terrible.Footnotes are more or less broken (which was sad to see, as they are source of great additional information), any type of column data (e.g., domains & prices) is a mess, making it very hard to read, and these combine together to occasionally lead to incorrect linebreaks, splitting paragraphs & the like.Considering it's currently priced at twice a typical Kindle book sells for, I was pretty surprised by that.

If you're interested in the world of domains, I would definitely recommend picking this up, but be aware of the above caveats if you choose the kindle format.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Complete History of the Domain Business
[...] is a wonderful book for those that want to know the history of the domain name business started, and progressed through the years. It covers the players and strategies involved in the business and exposes the business models used to generate domain portfolios that are worth hundreds of millions of dollars. Interesting read.

3-0 out of 5 stars The short, but fast paced history of internet domain names
I believe this book is totally fascinating to those who are new, hear about, or never engaged in real domaining practices, but were aware of what was happening. As a journalist's account of those who were successful in the domain name gold rush this book is a great piece of work. It denotes how value is undermined for companies and corporations until it hits them where it hurts them. As for future domainers or people interested in the real and future possibilities of making money from domain names and the internet itself, is not really useful. Those bucks should rather go invested in a hosting account and a domain name right away, since there is no better teacher than experience.

5-0 out of 5 stars Modern Gold Rush?
Ifyou like reading about and imagining yourself living in the "gold rush" days of the 1800s, you might also enjoy reading about a modern-day gold rush in the book "The Domain Game" by David Kesmodel.

The difference here is that there may still be some gold to be had - since a hundred years from now, the current time period will be regarded as the infancy of the Internet.

I enjoyed reading David Kesmodel's behind-the-scenes stories - and kicked myself even more for not registering www.realestate.com back in the day as I thought to myself, "I bet that might be a good domain name to have . . . ."

4-0 out of 5 stars Interesting historical account.
The subtitle of this book, "How People Get Rich...", would be more accurate by using the past tense; "How People GOT Rich..."However, although it is no longer possible to do what the early domaim name speculators did to get rich, a fundamental knowledge of the evolution of this industry is probably an important prerequisite for spotting future opportunities.

4-0 out of 5 stars Covers Basic Info
I read the PDF version of this book and found it covered a lot of basic info. If you are new to creating your own sites and don't understand the basics of registrars, and hosting, and how to set up a site or a blog this should help answer your questions. It starts with the basics of what a domain is and how to register one. Then it has quite a bit of information about domain emails, in fact, I even learned that you can set up your gmail account with multiple emails.

This book pretty much covers everything from creating a static site to a blog using WordPress, Blogger, or Typepad. It also touches on keyword research and link building. This book seems to be intended as an overview for beginners. If someone was confused by the structure of setting up their own sites, after reading this, they would have a good idea what to research next.

It's not the end all and be all of web information, but it is a nice starting point and a thorough overview that covers all the bases.

4-0 out of 5 stars Helpful book
I bought this book because I was assigned the task of researching websites in advance of revising my company's existing site. I didn't know a single thing about websites, so I bought a couple of books that sounded promising. This one far exceeded the other one I bought, for content, clarity and good writing. While I'm not looking to make a website for myself, and my company already has a web presence, I still learned a lot of the basics from this book, which is just what I was after. It doesn't cover every single thing, but it's pretty comprehensive. After reading it, I feel I would be able to start up a website on my own, if I wanted to.

1-0 out of 5 stars Only Honest Review Here - DO NOT BUY
Before purchasing this book, I was skeptical of all the 100% glowing reviews, and went on a mission to my local bookstores to peruse this book before making the purchase on Amazon.My many local different bookstores did not stock "I've Got A Domain Name: Now What?"I decided to take the plunge anyways, and bought it on Amazon. I just received this book about half an hour ago, and now I realize why local bookstores don't stock this 'book':

It's a pamphlet.

The author and the people they contracted to do the reviews here on Amazon should be ashamed.At 116 pages, in what looks like huge 24 point font, there's barely any material here.There's as much information in here as there is on one of About(.)com 's web pages, and less current.There's probably more text on the disclaimer page of a commercial drug in your magazine than in this entire book.And as for the content?Useless, irrelevant.When reading the title, you would think this book would show you all the ins and outs of making and promoting a website for business.Nope -- look at just a few examples of WHOLE CHAPTERS for this book:

- CH. 1: Understanding the Domain Name System ; -- Okay, I don't know about you, but I figure someone who already has a Domain Name (as the book's title would imply) already understands this system, otherwise they would not already have a domain name.Topic in this 'chapter': "Choosing a Domain Name" (ARE YOU SERIOUS?The book is called "I've Got a Domain Name: Now What?"... and you have this topic??)

- CH. 2: Registering a Domain ; -- Wow.Getting past the obvious reason why this shouldn't even be in this 'book', it pretty much lays out what the start pages of GoDaddy's ordering process would look like.Only, the writing in this book is even more technical and confusing.

I was going to actually post a video of this review, and let Amazon shoppers know how little is in this 'book'.But I'm currently in my pajamas, and this drivel I ordered is not worth the effort.I also was going to really tear into this 'book' in detail, but it's just frustrating to flip through the half empty pages.The author, Jean Bedord, should really be ashamed.How could you possibly charge twenty dollars (the MSRP on the back flap is 19.99) for a pamphlet?A small free booklet at your local Small Business Administration has more information than this pamphlet.

Please use the Amazon's Look Inside feature for this book, and look through the first few pages.That's it.You've pretty much seen half of this 'book'.The table of contents itself should tell you that there isn't enough here to fill a decent flyer, let alone booklet.If anyone else has bought or read through this, please post your honest review.We have to let people know that they should not waste their time here, and let us counter all the 5-star 'reviews' that Jean Bedord has paid for.I thought this would help me out, since I have some Dreamweaver books, a few entrepreneurial books on start up businesses, and a few more on actual website design.This book covers nothing.It describes what a domain is.That's it.Go to the wikipedia page for "Domain" and you will find ten times more useful information than you will in this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding book for getting started
I've Got a Domain Name--Now What???: A Practical Guide to Building a Website and Web Presence is a short book packed with solid advice on building your website. Jean Bedord shares her knowledge about creating websites that are "findable" by search engines. She begins at the basics, clearly explaining how "titles", "keywords" and "webpages" all fit together. My favorite part of I've Got a Domain Name--Now What???: A Practical Guide to Building a Website and Web Presence is that Bedord provides many detailed examples. Although some of the screenshots' type font is too small. I've Got a Domain Name--Now What???: A Practical Guide to Building a Website and Web Presence is an outstanding book with scores of tips for getting started.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great primer for both newbies and those with more indepth experience
Many more peoeple want to take advantage of having their own websites but have limited access to learning how to do so.The internet has too much information, which can be intimidating, but this book makes what can be an overwhelming process much easier to digest.

For individuals or companies, web sites have become like a business card,and this book helps make building a website and manageable process.
This is also a great resource for job seekers, to add a website to their arsenal of promotional tools!

3-0 out of 5 stars Generic Domain Name
I really like the "Dummies" books on almost any subject. It seems to me though that learning about domain names doesn't necessarily require reading a full book like this as there are plenty of resources online to learn about domain name buying/investing/etc (not all good of course). Either way, I am really glad to see this book published because it brings some more mainstream attention to this great subject.

- Joel

3-0 out of 5 stars Dated, Biased, But Worth the Price
In general, I am a big fan of For Dummies books.However, this book does not live up the usually high For Dummies standard for two reasons.This book was written at the height of the dot-com bubble, and GreatDomains.com wrote this book.

Having GreatDomains.com write this book would be like having Weight Watchers write Dieting for Dummies.You can't expect unbiased advice from a leading company whose business model is selling expensive generic/descriptive domain names.

There is a controversy on generic vs. proper names, but this is barely mentioned in the For Dummies Book.The opposite view, "The kiss of death for an Internet brand is a common (generic) name" is taken in the book "The 11 Immutable Laws of Internet Branding." I am not saying that one view or the other is correct, but a book on domain names should cover both sides.

Chapter 3 is titled "The New Land Rush in Domain Names."The first section is "Understanding the Reasons Behind Skyrocketing Domain Name Prices."Since the book has been published, domain name prices have fallen faster than dot-com stocks.All of the domain name prices in the book should be reduced by a factor of ten or more.

Still much of the book contains useful information, and the price is reasonable.You just have to keep in mind that the information is one-sided and written at the height of the dot-com bubble. A less biased but overly legal book is "Domain Names" by Elias & Gima.Also look at "How to Select & Buy an Elite Domain Name."

Product Description
The Domain Name System (DNS), which matches computer addresses to human-friendly domain names, has given rise to many legal issues. Two important issues are the institutional arrangements for governing the DNS and the use of trade marks as domain names. This book is the first complete statement of this rapidly-evolving area of the law. In particular, the book includes a comprehensive statement of decisions under the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP), the international system for resolving disputes between trade mark owners and domain name registrants. In this path-breaking work the author examines the extent to which principles of national trade mark law have been used in UDRP decisions. It will be essential reading for anyone, whether academic or practitioner, interested in internet law, intellectual property, and e-commerce law. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Inexpensive and Informative
This very affordable little book gave me the information I needed when I needed it and at a price that didn't make me wince.I wanted to find out something about domains (What in the world?); and I didn't want to pay $[...] at Barnes and Noble for the education.(I'm not called Cheap Mike for nothing!)Oh, I'd been around the net long enough to know the information was out there--but in a terribly disorganized and fragmented fashion; and besides, staring at a computer screen for hours hurt my aging eyes.Then along came the Kindle and little inexpensive books like this one.
I was dubious at first:something worth reading for less than three bucks?On the other hand even I am willing to gamble at these prices.And I won.This little book not only answered my questions, it piqued my curiosity and led me in a completely unexpected direction.
The first short chapter is called "What is a Domain Name?"Exactly what I wanted to know and I didn't have to plow through the mountains of verbiage that accompanies books with titles like "Learn this or that in 24 Hours" or "The Idiot's Guide" at fifty bucks a whack!
The following chapters are just as short and to the point.Want to know about types of domain names?Com.; Net.;Tv.; That sort of stuff?Want to know about how to make money with domain names?Have you ever wondered where domain names go when they die--excuse me, expire?It's all in this little book.Hey, with the money you save buying this little darling you can buy yourself a half dozen domain names!

1-0 out of 5 stars This should be under the "Pamphlet" Catergory
To even call this a book is a big stretch....it's a pamphlet, with big print taboot.There's very little in here that a keen 5th grader couldn't find for himself using google.As some people said there are alot of valuable websites (for the author and the owners of those websites) , he adds alot of websites that serve very valuable purposes and that are all very expensive to use (I've only visited 2 and one was $30/month while the other was $98.00/month)...then in 10 minutes of searching I found the same services for free on other sites.I find it hard to believe that so many people are blown away by this "book".......most of it is common sense.......It just goes to show you that you can also make a ton of money by writing a 40 page pamphlet and inserting monthly charging website url's into the book and then go around and make your monthly collections from your "advertisers" and make a killing.There's really nothing in here on marketing and advertising other than how to list something on Ebay.The websites all seem to serve a great purpose, but 2 times out of two I found another free site within 10 minutes.If you consider yourself educated and internet savvy, I really don't think this is the book for you.The only thing of value in this book is that domains that have been previously registered are worth alot more money PERIODand then he points you to expensive websites that will lead you to them.

5-0 out of 5 stars The inside scoop
I own a bunch of domains but haven't sold any yet before reading this book.I wanted the inside scoop.This book walked me through the process in plain language. You can tell it's written by someone who has done it, not just a writer.

It's very detailed. The author points out several resources to help you in the process. A useful read if you want to sell domain names.

5-0 out of 5 stars Nothing Left Out
The author walks you through the entire process of domain buying and selling from how and where to find them, evaluate their value, register, transfer and market them to make profit.The title is "101" but that is where this guide starts- it takes you through advanced areas of the art of domain flipping.

5-0 out of 5 stars This is the book I was looking for!
I have recently become very interested in buying and selling both websites and domain names.Information for beginner site-flippers is available in abundance, but most of the information I have been able to track down about domain-flipping (mostly in the forums) was a bit over my head.

This books gives a very good basic education about buying and selling domain names.Now, I am ready to go back to those forums and join in the fun!

Glad I found this one!

5-0 out of 5 stars History
Ellen does an excellent job recording history.What is unfortunate is that history is ephemeral on the net.Ellen's book is no longer in print - I ponied up for a used copy simply for the record of what transpired and I am glad to have it.

2-0 out of 5 stars Out of touch and out of date
I have to agree with one of my fellow reviewers - this book is way too technical and dry. With heavy, heavy chapters devoted to the development of the domain name system, trademark challenges, dispute case studiesetc., The Domain Name Handbook reads more like a govenment manual than an istructive and entertaining piece of writing. Ten out of ten for so much research but not many out of ten for entertainment value, (and, yes, even an instruction manual can be enetertaining).... Theirwell-linked pages will take you some interesting routes to wherever the real knowledge lies.

If you're a sucker for tables, lists, facts, data and specifics, this book with inform. If, like me, you prefer that learning should be fun, you'll find yourself in the wrong hands here. In any case, the book was published in mid 1998 and, with so much having happened on the Web, is in dire need of a revised update.

1-0 out of 5 stars Way too Technical
This book is way too technical and dry.Domain Names for Dummies treats the subject matter in a much more enjoyable and business-oriented fashion.

The user is left with little useful information and usable next steps.

4-0 out of 5 stars Thorough, detailed delivering what it promises
The Domain Name Handbook; High Stakes and Strategies in Cyberspace byEllen Rony, Peter R. Rony

This was the first book I purchased in mysearch tomake sense of the domain name business. It provides greatinformation on the details of the domain name naming system and the historyof the organizations involved. It also provides excellent information ontrademark considerations and issues. If you are an attorney, or anyoneseriously getting into the domain name business, you should have this inyour library.

Rony is highly knowledgeable about the minutiae of thedomain name registration rules, and offers a great history with someexamples of cases of trademark cases and squatting that are highly usefulfor understanding the way things work.She's now consulting as an expertin this area, a clear sign that her expertise is credible with corporationsand courts.

The book does not cover such considerations as thecreative and business consideration process of coming up with a uniquedomain name. There's another book that goes into this topic in moredetail--How to choose and Protect a great Name for Your website.

Neitherbook covers factors which contribute to the value of a dmain name,findingbetter prices for name registration, websites and strategies for doingresearch on names you are considering.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Most Comprehensive Domain Name Resource to Date!
Remember the old saying, "What's in a name?" A name should represent a well known company, person, quality workmanship, products, and services.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Valuable Book
Some inventors and entrepreneurs may have become gun-shy about utilizing the Internet to promote their products after the collapse of more than 100 dot-coms and the disappearance of 40,000 dot-com jobs in 2000. However, the fact remains that the Internet has become a powerful business tool not only for "new economy" companies but also for "old economy" companies. This book provides the basis for making informed decisions for selecting, maintaining, and using domain names to promote your product or service.

The authors immediately make the point that "Choosing a name, or more than one, for your web site is no trivial matter -- your decisions can make or break your business". They offer as proof as to the value of a good domain name the fact that one such name, just the name itself, sold for $7.5 million!

The book details how and where to register your domain names. Network Solutions Inc. (NSI), is the current dominant register, but others are listed and their web addresses given. It is vital to be the "senior user", i.e., the first to actually use the name. This applies to any domain name and in particular to when your name is also a trademark. It is also vital that your name be distinctive and that it avoids confusing customers by its spelling or by the sound of the name. The authors quote George Eastman's famous advise about name selection -- "Be short, be vigorous, be easily spelled, and mean nothing". They note U.S. trademark laws specify six types of names that cannot be used. One such category consists of names that "contain immoral, deceptive, or scandalous matter".

If you wish to sell or buy a domain name, the book provides a domain name transfer agreement form. A chart is given that lists the various factors to be considered if you discover someone is using your name or an excessively similar name.

You must be alert to "cybersquatting". That is others using your trademark as a domain name. In 1999, Congress passed a law against such bad-faith use of names.

In about l5 minutes, you can now search the U.S. Patent and Trademark database for registered or pending trademarks. The book gives directions and screen images of this site. A great deal of time, money, and grief may be avoided by making this simple trademark search. The book also lists other sites, such as www.thomasregister.com, for currently used commercial names.

Always remember that the "likelihood of confusion" is often the key ingredient in trademark hassles. Many court decisions have been made in this area, but it is still a gray area in some cases. The authors devote a full chapter as to how to register your domain name as a trademark in the U.S. Patent Office. Having a registered trademark is a powerful position to be in if a legal dispute arises.

Another chapter, "Help Beyond This Boo"," provides information as to where to go to do legal research regarding federal laws. It also provides advice for finding a lawyer who is competent with regard to trademarks and who is respectful, honest, and conscientious. Uncontrolled "billable hours" can ruin you financially. Read this section well.

The book's appendix contains a complete listing and explanation of the 42 classes into which trademarks are divided. Also, several pages detail how recorded computer software now is assigned to various classes.

In common with other Nolo publications, this book does a superb job of explaining, in plain English, the practical and legal aspects of the subject. This book will not make you into a domain name lawyer, it does not claim to, but reading it may save you a lot of grief down the road.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Useful Book that Saves $$$
I think this book is worth every penny. It helped me to find best sites and deals on domain names. It also taught me how to protect my trademark and keep all my whois info private.
I've learned so much about domain registrars. Choose the registrar which is right for you!
I would like you not tomake my mistakes.I had a pretty bad experience with GoDaddy. Yes, they seem to be cheap but then u discover hidden hooks and fees and need to pay extra $$$ :(((( I just transferred my domain to http://mapname.com for $6.85..And for this price I've got Free URL forwarding, Free Unlimited private emails, Free Private POP3 email box, Free Dynamic IP support, Free Spam protection....
They have private registration for free..I wonder why I've paid extra $9 to Godaddy ?
Anyways, be sure to read tips and hints in this book(they are
marked) Good luck with your domains!

4-0 out of 5 stars OK for Small Businesses
A better title for this book would be "How to Choose an OK Name for a Small Business."

As another reviewer noted, this book was written by lawyers, who seem to know more about law than marketing.Consequently, the marketing advice is rather basic, but correct in my opinion.This is exceptional considering all the bad advice out there on domain names.

But if you are a small business, you don't need a great domain name, and it's not cost effective for you to spend thousands of dollars or many hours choosing a great name.An OK name with no trademark problems will do for most basement, small and garage businesses.

Written by lawyers, this book has good trademark advice.If you are looking for marketing advice for a larger business, look at "The 11 Immutable Laws of Internet Branding" by marketing expert Al Ries, "How to Select & Buy an Elite Domain Name" or other books on branding.

3-0 out of 5 stars Worth the $20
This was the second book (there are only two in print) I bought in my quest to understand the domain name business. It does provide someuseful information on coming up with your own domain name and it doesprovide lots of info on trademark considerations in choosing a domain name.It is primarily for the trademark considerations that I give it the threestar rating. While the Ronan's book on Domain Names (The Domain NameHandbook; High Stakes and Strategies in Cyberspace by Ellen Rony, Peter R.Rony) does a nice job on covering trademark history, this book does abetter job from a "How-to" point of view, whichis notsurprising since it is published by an interesting publishing house, Nolo, which puts out lots of how-to law books. I expect to order more ofthese.

By my read, about 55 pages of the book are clearly related todomain names. The rest of the book is more related to trademarkconsiderations. It's almost as if they took a book on trademarks andmodified it and added the pages on domain names.

Since, if you screw upon a trademark factor with even a single domain name registration, it couldcost you at least the $16 or less cost of a name registration, this book's$20 cost is well worth the investment and time persuing its detailedtrademark coverage, to prevent running into trademark problems.

1-0 out of 5 stars TERRIBLE , inaccurate, and misguided.
This book was written by a couple bored lawyers, who know as much about domain names as I know about law. Funny, but you don't see me writing a book on law. Everyone thinks they are an expert, but these two will have ahard time convincing you of that if you waste your money to read theiralmost amusingly misleading advice. ... Read more

13. The Current State of Domain Name Regulation: Domain Names as Second Class Citizens in a Mark-Dominated World (Routledge Research in Information Technology and E-Commerce Law)

Editorial Review

Product Description

In this book Konstantinos Komaitis identifies a tripartite problem – intellectual, institutional and ethical – inherent in the domain name regulation culture. Using the theory of property, Komaitis discusses domain names as sui generis ‘e-property’ rights and analyses the experience of the past ten years, through the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) and the Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act (ACPA). The institutional deficit he identifies, generates a further discussion on the ethical dimensions in the regulation of domain names and prompts Komaitis to suggest the creation of an environment based on justice.

The relationship between trademarks and domain names has always been contentious and the existing institutions of the UDRP and ACPA have not assisted in alleviating the tension between the two identifiers. Over the past ten years, the trademark community has been systematic in encouraging and promoting a culture that indiscriminately considers domain names as secondclass citizens, suggesting that trademark rights should have priority over the registration in the domain name space.

Komaitis disputes this assertion and brings to light the injustices and the trademark-oriented nature of the UDRP and ACPA. He queries what the appropriate legal source to protect registrants when not seeking to promote trademark interests is. He also delineates a legal hypothesis on their nature as well as the steps of their institutionalisation process that we need to reverse, seeking to create a just framework for the regulation of domain names. Finally he explores how the current policies contribute to the philosophy of domain names as second-class citizens.

With these questions in mind, Komaitis suggests some recommendations concerning the reconfiguration of the regulation of domain names.

Editorial Review

Product Description
`The growth of the global information economy has opened up a series of conflicts between civil society advocates on the one hand, and commercial interests seeking to expand intellectual property rights on the other. Jacqui Lipton has provided a wide-ranging and thoughtful analysis of the clash between commercial values and broader social values unfolding within the administration of the Internet domain name system. Lipton's analysis is both rigorous and balanced, evaluating the development of the ICANN dispute resolution system and its impact on national laws, as well as considering possible future directions in the regulation of domain name rights and different dignitary interests.'
- Jane K. Winn, University of Washington School of Law, US

As the first form of truly rivalrous digital property, Internet domain names raise many challenges for law and policy makers. Analyzing the ways in which past disputes have been decided by courts and arbitrators, Jacqueline Lipton offers a comprehensive, global examination of the legal, regulatory and policy issues that will shape the future of Internet domain name governance.

This comprehensive examination of domain name disputes involving personal names and political and cultural issues sheds light on the need to balance trademark policy, free speech and other pressing interests such as privacy and personality rights. The author stresses that because domain names can only be registered to one person at a time, they create problems of scarcity not raised by other forms of digital assets. Also discussed are the kinds of conflicts over domain names that are not effectively addressed by existing regulations, as well as possible regulatory reforms.

Internet Domain Names, Trademarks and Free Speech brings pivotal new insights to bear in intellectual property and free speech discourse. As such, policymakers, scholars and students of intellectual property, cyber law, computer law, constitutional law, and e-commerce law will find it a valuable resource. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Thorough Domain Legal Review for Legal Types
This is the book to buy if you're looking for a thorough legal guide to domain names. Perhaps too thorough and legal-technical for the non-legal type; you won't find much technical or marketing help in this book.

Written by three attorneys in the United Kingdom, this 287-page book touches on all legal aspects of domain name registrations, trademark issues, sales and transactions and dispute resolution. Although provided with a heavily European flavor, the book will surely prove useful to anyone wanting to brush up on domain name legalese and case law throughout the world.

Applicable to any domain holder, the book does suggest registering your domain name as a trademark in as many classifications as possible in as many countries as possible, to avoid any future headaches. In addition, I was made aware of the "Madrid Agreement" whereby trademark applications are shared across 40 countries, simplifying the application process for any domain holder.

The book does attempt to address domain appraisal methods and secondary markets, however lackluster. The authors would have been better sticking to their business of legalese, as that is where this book shines. ... Read more
