As I've mentioned in earlier postings, in practice people acquire rights to virtual property on the Internet based on the following criteria: 1. Domain (i.e. home.sprynet.com) 2. Branch (i.e. /sprynet/dmeggins/) 3. Protocol (i.e. HTTP) 4. Time (i.e. March 1997-??) As many have pointed out, there are potential problems with #4, but it is still absolutely required to refer to the protocol somehow, since I do not have the rights for the same domain and branch with, say, Gopher or FTP.
