That's always been one of the more interesting footnotes of the history of the www.

If I just won back a domain that received $500,000 a month in advertising revenues I would be quite happy.

Heh, i pretty much expected the outcome. I'm not surprised that the original owner went all out to retrieve rights to the domain again.. it just makes sense to try and get something that can make you rich in no time.

Yeah, I thought this one was settled a year ago.

I guess the lawyers hadn't fed enough yet.
