The U.S. Government is going to require that
Standard Accouting Practices be used in buying
the rights to the .NET Franchise.
It is estimated that 8 or 10 times earnings will
be the final price.
With 4,000,000+ names, at $6 per name per year,
the profit is estimated to be about $5 per name.
That results in a $20,000,000 per year profit
and a $200,000,000 selling price for the .NET
The $500,000 Application Fee is designed to
discourage outsiders, who happen to have a spare
$200,000,000, from buying the .NET Franchise.
Imagine someone buying an NFL team who knows
nothing about football.
