Google Briefly Loses Control Of Its Web Domain

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

Good morning, I'm Renee Montagne. Sanmay Ved was killing time browsing the web when he came across a very interesting site for sale, google.com, just $12. He expected an error message but instead saw, order successful. The world's most famous domain was his for about a minute, before it was canceled. Still, Google offered a reward for his trouble, and when Ved accepted on behalf of a charity in India, Google doubled the reward. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
