Company Buys Back Bush Library Domain Name
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. A Web company didn't miss a chance to profit off a lost domain name. The name was georgewbushlibrary.com. A Florida firm was handling Web services for the president's library. The Dallas Morning News reports that the company's rights to the domain name expired. Another company called Illuminati Karate bought the name for less than $10. Then they sold it back to the Bush library contractor for $35,000. It's Morning Edition.
