Domain issues and legal issues – session 1 day 1 – 10-11am

I own over 1200 domains so I thought this was a great session to attend. I have bought domain names only, I have bought full sites and I have bought only content on sites.

Jeff Libert started off the panel and took questions for the audience so they could gear the session for the people. The first issue that Jeff talked on was steps to go through in purchasing a domain. He touched a lot about trust and stolen domains. Mainly on this he focused on how to make sure your not buying a stolen domain. The other emphasis was on the trusting people. He asked the audience if anyone had purchased domains from forums. I raised my hand and he asked me where I had bought a domain from. He made big emphasis on only doing deals with good reputation to be safe. The trust issue also bled into making sure the person who provides you with content on a website. This also led into who owns what content. Like for instance if you work for a company and you write articles that are published on a website. If the website sells then is the workers work sold with the site and if it is does he have any rights to royal tees. The bottom line from the lawyers on the panel who are the leading attourneys in this area say that if nothing was writtin its under work for hire where the company would always own the copyright to the content. Soon this got into domain c&d and this got pretty interesting.

Next up was Monte Cahn from Moniker.com domain register.

Monte talked more from a register perspective on what they are offering customers. He talked about how they offer test driving domains and lots of other neat features. He also talked about domain registrations.. see the slides below-

some coming soon

  1. 1200 … that’s crazy. how do you manage that? do you run scripts that instal real quick? are you jsut parkign most of them?

    i don’t quite grasp how individuals do this by themselves … hosting must cost a fortune … granted the sites are making money.

  2. I have my own custom landing pages for most of the parked ones. Many of them are also just variations of good domains I want to keep like shoemoney.com/org/info/biz/us/ ect

  3. I have about 30+ domains. I’m afraid to buy too many because I’m not sure how long domains really will be around. What do you think will happen in the future as TV and Internet combine? In ten years will we still be using domains names like we do now, or will there be an evolution to something different?

  4. I’m up to 20 domains myself and am so happy to see that you use Godaddy! I thought I was being a bit too mainstream by going with them, but they make it all so easy and thought-free that I couldn’t pass up…
