    As you can see I'm a newbie. Do you think I pick the right category for this topic? -- Matt

    Very interesting. I just don't see why he needed to spend $1k on domains. And what sort of legal fees cost him $5k? I looked at the site and wasn't entirely impressed. It's very true that he cashed in on his name and maybe next time it won't be as effective. Especially considering his first move into social software resulted in "the worst website ever".

    I wondered about the costs too. $5k for legal fees? Maybe that's how much it costs to register a trademark as one might want to do to protect a unique business name/brand, especially where it's closely tied to a domain name -- Matt

    I think calling it successful would be a stretch. But, it was an open experiment on his part that's worth sharing.
