Everything Must Go
It’s been a busy week or two and we forgot to mark another important date on the calender, June 7. Just over two years ago, Joe Price registered the domain for eyecandydvds.com, a shop for adult novelties and videos.
Joe must have been pretty optimistic in June 2007, ten months after the murder; he paid for a three year registration for the website.
Back in the spring when ‘Bea’ first tipped us on the site, we somehow overlooked a small feature on the eyecandy website. Namely, the contact form has a familiar name.
Of course it does.
‘Michael’ can be reached here at firstname.lastname@example.org
A few days later on June 10, 2007, Joe registered his Adams-Morgan retail store with the DC Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs. ‘Fascinating’ dug that up from the their database. Go team.
The grand opening was to be just three months away, September 1. More optimism. I haven’t been up to Adams-Morgan lately (who has?), but am confident Joe’s retail location is just as vacant as the website.
Is there anything to salvage from this business venture?
We’re not sure if Price’s DCRA business license requires annual renewal as the registration form doesn’t say.
And in a year, eyecandy’s domain registrar will send emails to Joe letting him know it’s time to renew the registration. Trouble is that Joe might be pretty busy next June; it will be the midway point of his trial.
The other trouble is register.com might not have his current email address. Joe used this: email@example.com. More optimism still.
In any event the domain may end up in good hands. A back order alert at Go Daddy.com for $20.00 gets dibs on it when it expires.
Mark June 8, 2010 on your calenders: eyecandy’s liquidation sale. Going out of business. For ever.
