A New BusinessWeek Story Regarding Lawley and .XXX

Stuart Lawley navigates Bear’s Club Drive in his midnight sapphire Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupé, a $464,000, 3-ton, 12-cylinder land yacht so well-engineered that ensconced in its butter-soft leather, one barely senses motion at all. Lawley docks gently at a French-style château adjacent to the 15th fairway of a luxuriant tropical Florida golf course designed by “the Golden Bear,” Jack Nicklaus. Celine Dion owns a place nearby, Lawley mentions. Michael Jordan is building on two lots just around the bend.

Story continues here...

I saw that article and read the whole bullshit thing.

It leads one to believe that lawley made his fortunes selling .xxx and that plain aint true.

He was a multimillionaire way before getting involved in XXX. According to the story .XXX revenues were 25M in the first quarter....My guess is that MIGHT cover his outlay but thats about it. He fought for years to get that approved and spent a lot of money, add in the salaries, offices, lawyers, kickbacks, bribes etc I bet he hasnt shown a dime in profits and the revenues will just go downhill from here.

All fluff and no real content. Poorly written article.

In 2010 Lawley told Businessweek that dotxxx would bring in $200 million a year selling Web addresses at $60 a pop. and his "Paypal for dotxxx" would process $3 billion to $4 billion in transactions a year.

He said this with a straight face?

“We just want to help producers make more money from more adult content,”
