If you were to have a site that you planned to close, so that it will make you exactly $0 – zero dollars – will you refuse an offer from someone to pay $11 million for the dead site? The dead site in question is Stage6, a popular video sharing site that closed at the end of February this year. Well, DivX did exactly that. They ignored an $11 million offer to buy Stage6 five days before it closed. They’re still refusing it to-date – even though Stage6 is no longer generating any income for its founders and the offer is still open.
Is this weird or not? This continues the mystery that began with rumor that they were making millions from the Stage6 site at the time they closed.
