CNET Reports: Bid your name into a Grisham novel
"A group of American authors has decided to auction names of characters in their forthcoming novels, in a bid to raise funds for the First Amendment Project.

Using eBay, the authors will auction the character names using the auction portal's charity listings, Giving Works. People can submit bids on behalf of their own name or any other name they choose during the auction series, which is scheduled to run between Sept. 1 and Sept. 25. The money raised will be donated to the FAP, a nonprofit organization promoting freedom of information and expression.

The idea for the auction came from Neil Gaiman, who recently sold off the name of a cruise liner in his upcoming novel, 'Anansi Boys,' for $35,000 on eBay. The proceeds were donated to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund."

My comment: I wonder where the worl is going to be now......
