Why is this so hard? When I buy something, assuming it's legal to own, I own it. I can't think of anything else that is contrary to that except for the governments right to eminent domain. Even using the right of eminent domain they need to "buy" the property at "fair market value". What's the "fair market value" of a domain? I believe that it's somewhere between the GoDaddy price and the value of the last published sale. I seem to remember a domain (sex.com) selling for something like $13 Million recently. Why would folks continue to "buy" domains when they could sue for them?
