I bet legal fees were included in this sales price.
The top sale on this week’s Afternic domain sales report is TribalWars.com at $34,910, and it’s an interesting one.
The buyer, Innogames, has an MMORPG called TribalWars. In 2011 Innogames filed a UDRP against NameMedia (technically against BuyDomains) for the domain.
Now, two years later, Innogames has finally realized that if it wants a good domain is simply needs to pay for it.
Innogames has gone from filing a complaint against NameMedia to being a customer.
TribalWars.com isn’t the only domain it has purchased from NameMedia. Last month it bought BattleCommander.com for $2,731. Perhaps it is learning to buy the .com domain before launching a web site.
I wonder how much NameMedia would have demanded for BattleCommander.com had Innogames first tried to steal it with a UDRP?
