Our panelists will discuss our "Dirty Little Industry" and the Abuse, Schemes and Scams that are ongoing, while some choose to look the other way as they, themselves, benefit. From Halvarez to Clawbacks, there is pressure to look the other way and bend standards because of friends and the almighty dollar. Why do Domain Investors always end up holding the bag? And why do Domain Investors exuse that unethical type of business? When does a problem become a crisis?
