    An excellent two-letter domain. I would love to see that developed. It's amazing how much greed a two-letter dot-com will inspire.

    I worked on the recovery of RL.Com for several years. It's amazing how tenacious the guy who acquired it for $15,000 from the hijacker was about hanging on to the domain. He lost on summary judgment, appealed and got a partial reversal, went to jury trial, lost there, took an appeal, lost there, went bankrupt and tried to get favorable rulings from the bankruptcy court, and failed there. A Google Scholar search gives you the whole sordid history, for those who want to read a real domain-theft detective story as told in the actual legal documents.
