    has more WIPO cases for any one person I have ever seen...

    He seems to made many web surfers angry as well, by registering domains they want to register, and not being able to contact him.

    Anyone know?

    No, I am not, most people are amateur domainers who become upset when they have an idea to develop a site, and they see he is just parks it, from what google search pulled up, I guess when you own 50,000 domains that are pretty much parked you might tick off a few people who want to purchase or develop, and brands, and TM's get cross referenced.

    Gregg Ostrick of GNO, Inc. reported that his company acquired the Yin-Yang symbol Emoji domain name, ☯.com, for $11,201. That last $1 must've been pivotal in the deal. :xf.grin:

    That made me inquisitive about whether I have met him before at a conference. I could only find three pictures of him online. We haven't met.

    This thread was the first page I found while searching. My compilation post might save someone else time.

    Can't take those domains with you to the grave. So, he better start selling them. Otherwise, what's the point? The average person knows nothing about domaining so even if he left them to a family member they would either just let them drop or sell them for far less than market value.

    It's a mystery. Call Scooby and Shaggy to solve this one.

    wt...??? Some people own 4, 5, 6 or more houses. Can't live in them all, and can't take them with them to the grave. And if the person has no siblings etc. to leave them to, should they sell them now so other people who wish they could own one of them can use them? Good grief..., the reasoning of some people.?!?? :rolleyes:

    Alright, sorry to bring up an old thread. But were investigating the possibility of acquiring a domain name, so did a whois search and found this "Gregg" guy who I've never heard about.

    He's not on LinkedIn, anyone know how to contact him?

    The domain I'm interested in does not resolve..

    I had the impression Rick was a quality over quantity guy. Interesting.

    Rick Schwartz has a much smaller, streamlined portfolio.
    You might be thinking of Frank Schilling.

    Maybe guy is planning to take over the domain market somewhere in the future, as popular names could be quite popular someday

    He owns some great names, and has made some big sales. He bought many of the names during cheaper times than we are seeing today.
