    The market for URLs has low volume and high differentiation so I think the only way you will be able to get a valuation is to find a buyer.

  6. Re: Return List will fail on WCF

    It probably isn't being serialized - because it isn't marked with a DataMember

    Also look at : CollectionDataContract to make the serialisation "nicer".
