A good domain can be key to any business and in the porn business they don't come much better than sex.com.

One man, Gary Kremen, realised this early on and registered the site for a bargain $100. It would eventually cost him millions in legal fees as an extraordinary conman named Stephen Cohen would blatantly steal the domain.

In part 2 of 2 of this tale I focus on how Cohen used sex.com, the legal battles, the conclusion of our tale, and where our actors are now.
