"A broker of Internet domain names [DomainMart]
lists 'billgates.com' for sale for $1 million."
"Perhaps I should be flattered that somebody
imagines the name is worth so much, especially since my parents
gave me the same name 42 years ago for free."
"Asking prices for domain names are often
between $500 and $2,000, and it's not uncommon for really good names
to fetch $5,000 or more. A media company paid $7,000 for search.com
and $15,000 for tv.com. Every once in a while, a name sells for
much more; business.com reportedly sold for $150,000."
