Wrong list, this list is for .au domain names and they are not recognised as
assets in this country.

LOL &#167; "a domain name is not an asset and cannot be claimed as one" - if a
domain name is not an asset why are some selling every month for tens of
thousands of dollars? (see http://dnjournal.com  <http://dnjournal.com> )

Several US courts have ruled that domain names are indeed "intangible
property" - http://www.domainhandbook.com/property.html

If you agree a domain name is not an asset then your whole argument falls 
down.  The rights of usage and transfer are assigned by license, there are
no
property rights.  So glad you agree.

One could ask WTF are you on about.
