My background is in securities and I have been hesitant to jump in without hearing more about regulations and licenses.
In general, all securities offered in the U.S. must be registered with the SEC or must qualify for an exemption from the registration requirements. The registration forms a company files with the SEC provide essential facts, including: … Information about the management of the company.

FAQ: Is this a security?
I have worked with a team of securities lawyers for over a year, and spent a fortune. Short answer, NO.
We’ve found a way to make these offerings NOT a security – which is huge. That means 24/7 trading, peer to peer, with no restrictions. Our platform will be in legal compliance with securities laws — meaning, we’ll structure the offers to our buyers that make the positions you buy not a security.
I would take it that Aron’s counsel believes there is an exemption for what he will be offering. You can read about exemptions here.
Someone asked a great question with regards to a UDRP.
wwwweb said: ↑ What if the name gets hit with a udrp, and taken away, what happens to investment, am I obligated to pay for legal fees based on ownership.
It’s a great idea, for domain holders to raise working capital from dormant domains.
Aron: We will have that worked out. As of now, I am paying legal fees from UDRP and I refund buyers if a name is taken/stolen/expires etc.
A lot of people have discussed the prospects of fractional ownership, Reza from DAN.com, Rob Monster of Epik. It looks like Aron is committed to rolling out a full exchange to buy and sell. It will be interesting but in my opinion we need more info on the legal standing before jumping in.
So do you like the idea of owning some share in a 3L.com? What about a 2L.com or NNN.com?
