After $4k+ Sale, UDRP Filed on UOVO.com


I was looking through the newest UDRP filings this morning at the World Intellectual Property Organization, and I came across a UDRP that was filed on the 4 letter .com UOVO.com domain name. The UDRP was filed by a company called Uovo Art LLC, and it is WIPO Case D2016-0214.

When I did a Whois search to see the current owner of the domain name, I saw that it was privately registered at NameBright and had a 2015 creation date. I was curious if this might have been a DropCatch auction due to the registration date and registrar. I then looked at NameBio to see if there are any public sales records. Sure enough, according to NameBio, "UOVO.COM last sold for $4,125 on 2015-09-12 at DropCatch."

At the present time, UOVO.com has a (more…) → Read More

UDRP Filed Against KQ.com


It looks like a UDRP was filed against KQ.com at the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), and the complainant is listed as Kenya Airways Limited. The case is WIPO Case D2016-0153.

The domain name appears to be owned by a registrant based in China. If you visit KQ.com, you will see a message in Chinese, and after a short while, the domain name forwards to wangxin.com. KQ.com has a registration date of February 26, 1996. I searched through my email history, and I see the domain name appears to have been listed for sale back in 2011, although I am not sure if it sold. NameBio does not show any historical sales data for KQ.com.

I am not sure why Kenya Airways thinks (more…) → Read More

NameFind Hit With UDRP


It looks like a domain name owned by NameFind, LLC is the subject of a UDRP filing. I was looking through the World Intellectual Property Organization's new UDRP cases, and I saw that a company called Ellery Land Pty Ltd has filed a UDRP for the Ellery.com domain name. This is WIPO Case D2016-0066.

Ellery.com is registered to NameFind, LLC. This company is affiliated with Afternic, and the domain names in its portfolio are from portfolios including the Marchex portfolio and Mike Berkens's portfolio. A Whois history search shows that Ellery.com was previously owned by Marchex.

I did a Google search for Ellery Land Pty Ltd because I had never heard of the company before, and it looks like the company is in the fashion business and uses (more…) → Read More

UDRP Filed on Eight 6N.com Domain Names


There aren't many UDRP proceedings involving numeric domain names. I don't know of an easy way to search for numeric domain UDRPs, so I can't say how many have been filed, but I don't really know of many off the top of my head.

This afternoon, I noticed a company called "Cube Limited" filed a UDRP at the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) against 8 numeric domain names. The UDRP case is WIPO Case D2015-2206.

The domain names are all 6n.com domains, and include the following: (more…) → Read More

UDRP Filed on Areas.com


Another UDRP has been filed on what appears to me to be a descriptive keyword domain name. According to the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) UDRP database, a UDRP was filed on the Areas.com domain name. The UDRP is WIPO Case D2015-1482.

The complainant in this UDRP is listed as AREAS, S.A. Whois records show that Areas.com is registered to a person (or maybe an entity) with an address in Spain. Historical Whois records seem to show that the domain name has been registered to the (more…) → Read More
