I think it’d be helpful to know what they offered and the size of the company.

Oh, you made a mistake by posting your plan... someone has probably already claimed your douchebagbrandsoap.com URL

It depends on the client and how many alternative url options they have. It could be 5 grand or it could be 5 million

Basic cable entertainment channel… To your point I had bought HGTV as well but that’s essentially useless as they bundled with Scripps

What are they offering?

Ohh this is crazy low. I’m sure you can get a min of $10k if not a ton more. Even 50k wouldn’t surprise me. There is a chance they could sue you for trademark infringement but that would cost them a lot in legal fees.

Can’t you be taken to court for this? I knew a guy once that bought URLs of sports athletes. Rather than give him an offer for the domains, the company threatened legal action and the owner surrendered the URLs. I agree that this feels scummy, but you do you.

Not sure. Was half a joke when I did it.
