GoDaddy (NYSE:GDDY) patent covers a number of methods for transfering domains as the result of an aftermarket sale.

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has granted patent number 9,954,818 (pdf) which covers a number of aspects of selling an expired domain.

The patent is a continuation-in-part of many other patents and is titled “Domain name hi-jack prevention”. However, the claims are directly related to certain aspects of domain name aftermarket purchases.

While I approve of protecting customers from domain-name theft, I am sure GoDaddy will demand that other registrars cease and deceit from using such aspect of domain name aftermarket purchase or pay a license fee to GoDaddy if they want to continue using it.
