Re: i don't think i can sell this...
>Ok, so how much is internic.net worth? Do I hear $50,000? ;) Sorry, I wasn't going to comment, until this... I wondered about this too, since I couldn't find a trade mark registration for InterNIC. Turns out AT&T (the quiet half of the InterNIC) registered the *service mark* InterNIC. Network Solutions registered the domain name internic.net (with themselves?). Is it possible to design a more complex system? Supposedly AT&T is negotiating with the National Science Foundation over the service mark "InterNIC." One plan is for AT&T to assign the mark to NSF. Whether this would prevent future squabbling over the mark "InterNIC," I don't know. Personally, I'm not sure who's lawyers would scare me more in court. The United States, or Ma Bell? Before you can sell internic.net, first you have to figure out who it belongs too. If you don't believe me, I have a bridge in Brooklyn for sale. I'll go back to lurking now. -- Sean Donelan, Data Research Associates, Inc, St. Louis, MO Affiliation given for identification not representation
