About a month ago we told you that around 2,000 domain names owned by Joel Williams/Dream Sellers/In Stealth Mode had been frozen by a state court after certain parties claiming rights in and to those domain names filed for an injunction with a Tennessee Court.
At the time we noted that the parties filing the suit must have had an old list of domain since so many of the domains on the list were no longer owned by Williams including hundreds of domain were unregistered.
Other domains owned by Joel Williams which were not on the list provided by the Plaintiffs are are starting to hit NameJet.com auctions as pending delete domains.
The domain name registrar, Name.com was a huge player in the .TV extension.
Actually Name.com was catching expired .TV almost with such a high success rate, they were pretty much the only .TV backorder system.
However since Name.com was bought by Demand Media, Inc, (DMD) for $18 Million Dollars, all of the expired Name.com domains including the .TV domain names seem to be going to Namejet.com on an exclusive basis and they are hitting NameJet.com auctions.
There are a few prime .TV domain names now in auction at NameJet.com which were formerly owned by Williams or one of his companies including, Celeb.tv, Pussy.,tv, Comic.tv and Director.tv which all went into privacy in 2012 only to be dropped for non-renewal in 2013.
Some of these domains sold for a one time fee in the $x,xxx range once they were freed from the .Tv premium program where the annual renewal fees where in the $x,xxx range per year or higher.
Another sad tale in what appears to be a rags to riches to rags story.
