Eleftherotypia: Greek publisher acquired domain & associated IP assets for 8.1 million euro

The Greek publishing company Alter Ego Media, owned by shipowner Vangelis Marinakis, acquired the rights to “Eleftherotypia“, “Sunday Eleftherotypia” and the domain name Enet.gr. The assets were auctioned today in a bankruptcy process for 8.1 million euro ($8,793,805 dollars.)

Eleftherotypia, a Greek newspaper advocating “freedom of the press,” was a prominent national daily in Athens. Established on July 21, 1975, it emerged as the first newspaper post-fall of a 7 year military junta ruling Greece between 1967-1974 and maintained a central role in circulation for most of its existence. With a center-left, socialist perspective, the paper was esteemed for its independence and impartiality.

Due to the economic downturn in Greece at the time, Eleftherotypia faced bankruptcy in 2011, underwent a brief takeover and ultimately ceased operations in November 2014.

Alter Ego Media is the leading media group in Greece, operating category-winning media assets in various news, entertainment and niche category areas, such as daily newspapers To Vima, Ta Nea, the online magazines In and Financial Postman along with MEGA TV channel.

Although the sale of the domain name Enet.gr comes along with the publishing rights to the daily and Sunday editions of Eleftherotypia, it arrives without any web site content.

Enet.gr was registered on February 21, 1995, making it one of the oldest Greek domain names in existence.
