When I think of PATENTS.COM, I immediately think of Carl Oppedahl’s old law firm. Of course, this secondary meaning was not enough to overcome the Federal Circuit’s determination that the domain name’s trademark usage was merely descriptive. [Link]
PATENTS.COM is now up for sale! As of today, the high-bid is $10,000. I expect the bidding to go much higher for this trendsetting and well established domain.
