That was the estimate established before the .ws, .us etc. were made. But seeing the popularity of the .com, .net and .org, I'm pretty sure the estimates are pretty close, though everything below a .org might be worth more than they had prior.
the percentages are totally inaccurate, I have never seen a good example of a .net selling for 50% of a .com value, it is more like 1-10%, the .org is just as far out.
If everything else is worth 1-10% of a .com value why is sex.gm still available and why did casino.ws sell for $400 recently yet casino.com sold for $5.5 million? surely casino.ws would be worth $55,000-$550,000 using your 1-10% estimation?
