LDW.com Subject of UDRP Proceeding
A UDRP has been filed against LDW.com, a valuable three letter .com domain. The UDRP was filed at the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), and it is WIPO case #D2017-0430. The complainant in this case is listed as LDW Software, LLC.
LDW.com is currently registered to a domain registrant with an address in China. From a DomainTools Whois History search, it looks like this registrant has owned the domain name since August of 2015. Prior to that, the domain name was briefly registered to a Gmail address, and it was privately registered prior to that.
Up through mid-2014, it looks like LDW Software owned the domain name, although a privacy service blocks everything but the registrant name. Archive.org shows the LDW Software website operating through at least July of 2016.
I have no idea what happened with this domain name, but it will be interesting to see if there is some sort of internal dispute or if the company otherwise lost control of the domain name somehow. LDW.com is obviously a high value domain name. In fact, Estibot pegs its value at $67,000.
I will update this when the UDRP decision is published.
