      Sky Live - A new Project?

      Our friends at MarkMonitor.com have been on the lookout for some new domain names for Sky.

      Currently, SKYLIVE and SKYLIVE are up for sale by one of our members, and that person has been approached by MarkMonitor to purchase them on behalf of a client.

      As we already know, MarkMonitor register domains for Sky. The same company that purchased all the Picnic Domains in August of this year.

      To protect the deal details, we will not mention how much the owner of the domains was offered to sell both. However we do know that the initial offer that MarkMonitor made, was rejected by the current owner.

      Another point of interest was the way that MarkMonitor handled the enquiry. They used a GMail account to enquire, however they forgot NOT to click on the Read Receipt, which read acquisitions at markmonitor.com Obviously this was not a Skoogle Email account as it worked.

      So why would Sky want these two new domains? We have heard various sources of information that this is for "an internal newspaper type website" - Unconfirmed.

      Domain ID: D129097-MOBI
      Domain Name:SKYLIVE.MOBI

      Now is it me or are they both the same company?
