Kickstart Commerce Podcast - Domain Investing & Development Strategies

The Worldwide Jurisdiction Risk That Domain Investors and Brokers Face with Michael Gargiulo

March 26, 2021

Welcome to the Kickstart Commerce podcast where we share search marketing and domain investing strategies to help grow your business.

In today's episode, our guest is Michael Garguilo — a long-time domain investor and developer, and serial entrepreneur. 

Today Michael and I confront:

  • How domain investors are one frivolous lawsuit or claim away from a domain registrar locking their digital assets
  • We specifically speak about the case of GoDaddy locking Brent Oxley’s multi-million dollar portfolio of ultra-premium domains by a bad actor filing a lawsuit in India
  • Michael shares actionable insight towards reducing and eliminating the risk of litigation lockups of domain portfolios, including which domain registrars are domain-investor friendly
  • Lastly, we talk about the future, the credibility hit, and monetary losses, that both domain owners and their domains of such frivolous lawsuits or claims face.

Also, a few days after this recording, per Domain Name Wire, Godaddy will no longer indiscriminately lock domains when they are subject to a legal challenge.
