Attorney John Berryhill contacted broker Mark Daniel of Domain Holdings, as was offered for sale there, last week:

I heard from Mark Daniel of Domain Holdings, who was alerted to this thread, but does not have an account at Namepros. Mark was recently approached by someone who claimed to be in the UK and is interested in selling BNN .com. During preliminary discussions and after seeing the questions and information posted here at Namepros, Mark asked this person about the apparent theft, and this person said they would provide Mark with proof of their acquisition of the domain name many years ago. Of course, the domain name was owned until recently by Brel Software, and Mark has not heard back from the purported seller.
