Bidding Freeze

Bids from the Dec. 21 auction of the domain name PublicRelations.com (PRN, Dec. 20), held at www.domainrace.com, did not meet the "owner's reserve" asking price. As such, the auctioneer, Ron Perelman, is negotiating with bidders and considering a drop in the reserve price or a new auction in the new year, when more people might want to bid.
