The previous owner of confirmed that he sold the domain last year for a “seven figures” sum.  The sale is covered by an NDA so he couldn’t disclose the actual price.

The new owner is Liberty Global, the $35 billion market cap international cable company. changed hands in April 2013.

In 2011, was listed for sale by the former owner for $10,000,000.  At that time, the sales page stated that the owner had already turned down two offers for of a million dollars each.  While the sales price can’t be independently verified, it seems reasonable for such a premium domain.  Liberty Global is a publicly traded company, so perhaps the sales price will be revealed in its company filings. was the subject of a UDRP dispute in 2000.  The Complainant was a London retail store.  Fortunately the domain owner prevailed.

“Liberty” related domains seem to attract UDRP disputes from companies who take the liberty of filing baseless complaints attempting to liberate the domains from their current owners.  My own domain – “Libertad” means “Liberty” in Spanish – was hit with a UDRP Complaint in 2011.  Thanks to the response prepared by Ari Goldberger and Jason Schaeffer of, the complaint was unsuccessful.
