John

If you want to ban something you need to define what it is.

I run a business, so do a lot of you.

By your rather vague definition any markup beyond cost would be forbidden, which is ludicrous.

John McCormack has answered at greater length, but suffice to say that if there’s an “issue” that needs to be addressed then it needs to be defined clearly and narrowly so that it can be discussed and addressed.

Regards

Michele

It is a tough one and probably like the famous definition of pornography in the US: "I know it when I see it."

Simply though, buying domains for the express purpose of reselling them at a profit. At some level, this practice raises the cost to end users.

The recent discussion on this topic has made me reflect on the topic more broadly and I'd like to share something provocative I've been pondering.

At the broadest level, domain reselling and all speculation surrounding domain names should be outlawed outright. ICANN doesn't as a rule tell end users how to (not) use their domains. However there is an argument to be made that speculative behaviour hurts all non-speculative users by increasing pricing.

Thoughts?
