Appeals court upholds Sex.com ruling

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rejected Stephen Cohen's appeal of a 2001 federal court ruling that he pay businessman Gary Kremen $65 million for stealing the domain name sex.com in 1995 and building it into a multimillion-dollar business. [USATODAY.com]
