    With the launch of the .xxx domain, purveyors of porn are eagerly snapping up descriptive domains. But another type of entity entirely is showing its appetite for porn domains: colleges and universities. They're not doing it so that it's easier for their cash-strapped students to sell their bodies in order to fund their educations; they're doing it to keep porn companies from launching Your University-themed smut sites.

    The guy that bought .xxx domains bought it just for this purpose. He is going to be making $100 million a year or more from the ownership of the .xxx tld.
