Fortunately, some companies are standing up to those who attempt to engage in disaster commerce. For instance, some name brokers have closed down domains named in connection with the Virginia Tech tragedy, such as BlacksburgBloodbath.com and SchoolSlaughter.com. These name brokers recognize the fact that there is an ethical line which simply should not be crossed in pursuit of profit—that money made from someone else's misery is ill-gotten gain.
Let's just hope that disaster commerce is one of those Internet fads that will fade over time.
