Can someone from GoDaddy clarify their backorder policy?
It seems that the GoDaddy policy on backorders and how they are handled after bids are placed isn't uniform across the board. Contradictory information exists, confusing bidders. The process needs some clarification from an official source; meanwhile, domain investors are attempting to use common sense on what might be taking place.

Hank Williams enters into the public domain
Copyrights do expire and this year the work of Hank Williams Sr. is among some interesting pieces that are losing protection. This educating exchange discusses the potential use of such work that becomes public domain and how this could be explored as an option for domain registrations, among other things.

Those who outbound, how can I make life easier?
Outbound sales require a lot of hard work; automating the process is an interesting subject that can take advantage of modern tools: AI analysis of big data and intelligent communication. A developer claims to have created such a tool that'd benefit domainers looking to get better results from their sales outreach.
