$35K for Bush Library domain

I realize this is old news, but had to add it here in case you missed it. Yuma Solutions, who have been contracted to do Web development for the library, at one point owned the domain name. They let it expire and had to pay $35,000 to the enterprising people who snapped it up for $10.

George W. Bush’s presidential library domain name has been retrieved after a Web developing company accidentally let it expire — and it apparently came at a high price.

Raleigh, N.C.-based Illuminati Karate paid less than $10 for the http://www.GeorgeWBushLibrary.com domain name and sold it back earlier this year for $35,000 to the library’s contracted Web developers, Yuma Solutions, said George Huger, lead Web developer for Illuminati Karate.
