Studies & Opinions:

A Single Price Index for Domain Names Is Misleading
Having a single price index for the domain name industry would be worse than useless.    Such an index is presented in a recent study by Thies Lindenthal. The index is intended to be a benchmark for domain owners and investors. But it's out of line with other studies and the common sense of how a market operates. A much better barometer to follow is average prices for groups of domain names with similar characteristics. (August 1, 2013)

Difficulty in Ascertaining Qualified Domain Name Appraisers
Selecting a qualified domain name appraiser requires proficiency in statistics, as some appraisers’ quantitative models used can be wrong, others are inaccurate, while those by experts using non-quantitative techniques are more often wrong. The human mind is not efficient in processing large data. Thus, you need rigorous quantitative models to appraise domain names. Nevertheless, mathematics proves that there is no model that is a complete representation of the truth. (August 1, 2013)

Singular and Plural New gTLDs: Costly Headaches
ICANN has recently stated that it will allow the public to register plural and singular gTLDs that are variants of  words already registered as domain names.   .Books will be able to join  the currently allocated .book, and .pet will be able to join .pets. Of course, a pair like .blue and .blues, two words that look alike but have different meanings, isn't at issue here. The focus is just plurals and singulars. But that leaves plenty of room for trouble, and ICANN has to tackle some tough questions now, before the policy launch. (August 1, 2013)
