I would agree that selling a domain name as part of a business would be
a necessity.  The difference here is where a domain name is being sold
without any value adding to it.  It is being sold purely as the domain
name without any effort having been put into building up any branding or
good will in it.

What is normally used as part of the criteria for a bad faith
registration under an ICANN UDRP action.
