Less than finance.com more than finance.org ;-)
--> Agree. More than finance.net?...I think not yet in 2002.

IMO would say $100,000 was conservative estimate.
--> Two years ago I would have said YES, but nowadays...
I would say $50,000
Does anybody know of a sale in that region in 2001?

To get it as part of trademark name, or because they have it as graphic (it was issued as graphic and NOT word) would be an abuse of their trademark.
They could not use the single word 'finance' for financial information.
It would be against trademark law to use it for such - they have to disown the word or use it only in stylized form (as graphic only).
--> Maybe you're right... but these TM guys will always find a way: e.g. selling or leasing finance.info to a subsidiary.
