There can be objective measurements applied to give a base value.

Was just watching something on TV about ticket scalping.  The base value of
the tickets were $47 but someone had managed to get a hold of a hundred odd or
more and was selling them on ebay for an inflated price.

It seems the cricket board is going to cancel the tickets and re-issue them to
the general public.

The general opinion would appear to be that ticket scalping is a bad practice
but there will always be a few around who will pay the inflated price.

The fact there are some people who get caught paying an inflated price doesn't
justify the practice.

I don't see opening up the .au namespace at this time as anything but opening
the way for scalpers to get into the scene heavier than they are now.

Ticket scalping and domain speculation isn't that much different from what I
can see.  The pool of product is a bit larger in the namespace but that is
about it.  I'm not lumping all domain transfers into that bucket but to stop
one thing sometimes means others suffer.
