Usually, you wouldn’t UDRP one domain by itself with that end goal, I wouldn’t think.

He fumbles too often. His total yards mean little when he fumbles with the game on the line. IMO, The Viking will never be contenders. Maybe Peterson is a bitter professional athlete.

There is also a disclaimer on the top portion of the website that informs the reader that this is a fan site not affiliated with the Viking and Adrian Peterson.

Never liked Adrian Peterson much. Seems like he dropped the ball again on this UDRP.

It just seems unusual to me considering the amount of fansites out there of famous celebrities that don’t get taken down. Could it be because it had been monetized?

It’s really unfortunate because it could be argued that sites like this really give him a lot of support and only further his brand recognition. It’s sad when celebrities take down sites of people who only want to support them, especially when it’s younger fans who don’t mean anything bad by it.

It doesn’t make sense. My thoughts are that they would think that before someone would buy it they saw the history of what happened and it would deter them from spending the resources to build it out. Or it could just be his attorney milking him so that he could represent him in the future again.

I’ll try to call Mr. Peterson, but I don’t have his cell # :-)

In addition to talking to the attorney (if he gets back to you) I would check with the domain owner/agent. Perhaps they aren’t aware of how this actually works (with a domain being able to be grabbed again).

It is possible that the attorney isn’t experience enough to know what “cancellation” means.

It is also possible that this is a way for them to charge additional legal fees to their client when the name gets grabbed again. And of course the client not knowing this business will not know how easy that would have been to prevent by getting a transfer.

That makes little sense to me. If it was important enough to file a UDRP, it doesn’t make sense to cancel it in their case since they have a brand and would have to go after it again.

The example I mentioned was for domains that the company would be attempting RDNH. As in the case of SaveMe.com, they tried to buy it from Schwartz but failed to reach an agreement. By attempting to hijack a domain through a UDRP action, and by asking the panel to delete the domain, they’ll try to pretend that the domain is no of much importance and that they’d rather have the domain deleted to avoid confusion, where in fact they really want the domain.

People that try to argue it in their favor are clueless and here is another example of them being in the wrong. Nice post.

I don’t see how it would make any sense in that scenario you mentioned. If a company thinks it has rights to the domain name, why would they ever want it cancelled so they could spend money trying to buy it when they could just as easily request that it be transferred. If they win a UDRP, they would get the name rather than having to fight to get it. I don’t follow that logic.

I never understood the remedy of cancellation either. Why wouldn’t someone want a domain name that consists of their name or brand?

The complainant can then go out and place backorders at different providers to take a shot once the domain drops.

My reasoning was exactly what you suggest in your post, that somebody else would pick up the name in a drop and then the complainant would have to go through the whole process again.
