How Foursquare bought my domain to steal my idea(medium.com)

    If you sell something for what you think it's worth, than you don't have any reason to complain when your buyer values it much more than what you sold it for. You got what you want for it, which should make you happy. Foursquare did not "trick" anyone in this case. And it's not the domain name that makes Foursquare millions, that's only a little part of their overall business. The real value of a domain name is about $15. All higher values are subjective. The value of the Mona Liza painting is the cost of its paint and canvas to some, but millions to someone else. There is no right or wrong here.
