    S E X is bankrupt, er...the owner of S*X.com, that is
    About 20 minutes ago I received this in an email from Sedo:
    ...press release below:

    Involuntary Chapter 11 Petition Filed Against Escom, LLC - Owner of the Sex.com Domain Name

    Woodland Hills, California - Creditors of Escom, LLC ("Escom") today filed an involuntary Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition against Escom in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California (San Fernando Valley Division).

    Petitioners took this action to protect their interests and to maximize value for all other creditors and equity holders. The filing will stay the public auction foreclosure proceedings previously scheduled for March 18, 2010, which petitioners believe would have diminished the value of Escom's assets.

    For more information, please contact:

    Lawrence Morrison, Esq.

    Meister Seelig & Fein LLP

    (212) 655-3582

    ------------------------------------------------------

    One interesting (to me, anyway) thing is that the law firm claims to have specialists in technology and intellectual property litigation. YET - their website is hosted on one of those free-site thingies at Register.com - in a frame with a banner ad at the bottom of the page.

    Uh, Bill, I see no banner ad, and their site/hosting is with Network Solutions, which is not free (and their site has been online since 1996).

    No...no...not the "subject" domain. The domain of the law firm (as it appears in the press release email addy).

    Maker's Mark - not today. Today/this evening - could be (should be) Jameson's or Red Breast or Middleton's (but I can't afford that stuff). Happy St. Patrick's Day, guys. I'll lift one for ya.

    OK, this is interesting.

    The law firm site I looked at is meisterseelig dot com, which is what I was discussing. msf-law dot com is a separate site, and is as you described, and has different whois info. BUT the content of the sites appears to be identical.


    Maybe they've been hitting the Maker's Mark, or the Jameson's.

    You want sad? Use a keyword tool like freekeywords.wordtracker.com even with the adult filter on and you will see what people are trying to find.

    The story of sex.com is fascinating. This bankruptcy is just the tip of the iceberg.

    The good thing for the guy who owns it is that even if he is bankrupt, he's owns an asset which he'll likely be able to sell for quite a lot and probably retire on.
