DOMAINfest notes for days 2 and 3 by James Koole

James Koole from Tucows writes up what he and Bill Sweetman observed during days two and three of DOMAINfest last week. In addition to the auction, Bill attended a number of sessions over the last few days and they give some notes to summarise what was presented. They cover the SnapNames auction with the big seller for US$310,000; John Berryhill looks at domain names and the law and warns domain holders to be wary of vague approaches to buy a domain name; a summary of the domainers town hall meeting with Frank Schilling (this man is everywhere at the moment) with a few words on Moniker’s Monty Cahn’s insights on the strength of the domain name industry.
