Recently, we sold AustralianLamb.com.au to Meat & Livestock Australia Limited.
The sale was negotiated via Corporation Service Company, and the transaction was one of the smoothest I’ve ever been involved in.
I say “smoothest” because sometimes, as a domain investor, if you get an initial enquiry from CSC Digital Brand Services you wonder which way the transaction will go? Are they going to try and assert some sort of “rights” over the domain name? Or are they willing to negotiate a fair price?
The latter was the case in this instance. And Joe from CSC was friendly and professional to deal with. He made the deal happen quickly (including payment).
In my experience, if you don’t register domain names that comprise trademarks (or if the words are generic and/or geographic), then you haven’t got a problem. And that has always been the way we operate. In all our years of trading, we’ve never lost a domain name to a dispute.
But we had nothing to do with the TV commercial!
