Sale of goodwill



From the standpoint of the seller:
Would the sale of self-created goodwill be considered a capital gain or
ordinary income for the seller?

Would the amount received for a covenant not to compete be ordinary
income or a capital gain for the seller?

How about the sale of a client list?
