There is apparently a battle for the control of publicly traded domain name registrar (ticker symbol RCOM).  RCM Acquisition made an unsolicited offer last week, now Zackfoot Investments has made a higher offer.

Other publicly traded companies in the “brand” sector are Verisign (ticker VRSN), Tucows (TCOW.OB), Information Holdings Inc. (IHI), Melbourne IT (MLB on the Australian Exchange) and NetBenefit (NBT on the London Exchange), if you were thinking of putting together a Naming Mutual Fund or something.
