Fish 'n Chips

Here is an interesting OECD paper about the secondary market for domain names. It contains a fairly intricate market definition, according to which the market is estimated to be worth some USD 400 Mio p.a. So, what about that fish? Well, it's hard to believe looking at it, but fish.com seems to have fetched a winning bid of over USD 1 Mio last year!

I don't 'get' fishing myself, but it's generally regarded as the most popular participative sport in Britain. More than a million take part on a regular basis.

If you can call sitting on your backside and drinking tea a 'sport'. We'd be world champions at that.

Sure, but why on earth pay a million bucks for the website???
