Jim Cramer Files UDRP on Domain Name with 4 Hyphens

5

There was a unique UDRP filed at the World Intellectual Property Organization for a domain name that has 4 hyphens and 5 words! Jim Cramer (listed on the WIPO website as James J. Cramer) filed a UDRP against jim-cramer-charitable-trust-stocks.com. The UDRP is WIPO Case D2016-1756.

As you may know, Jim Cramer is a well known financial analyst and hedge fund founder who became popular as the host of CNBC's Mad Money tv show. You can read more about Cramer's background on Wikipedia.

The jim-cramer-charitable-trust-stocks.com domain name was created back in October of 2007. According to Archive.org, it looks like there has been a website on that domain name for quite some time. In fact, several photos of Mr. Cramer are on the website.

Accenture Files UDRP on 75 .XYZ Domain Names

11

Accenture, one of the largest consulting companies in the world, has filed a UDRP proceeding against 75 .xyz domain names. The case was filed at the World Intellectual Property Organization, and it is WIPO Case D2016-1682. I have listed the 75 domain names below.

I did a quick Whois search on a handful of the domain names, and it appears that they may all be owned by the same entity with a Vietnam address. The domain names I checked had an early-June registration date.

Based on the registration dates I saw, (more…) → Read More


ZL.com Subject of UDRP Filing

ZL.com

A UDRP has been filed against the valuable two letter ZL.com domain name. The UDRP was filed at the World Intellectual Property Organization, and it is WIPO Case D2016-1665.

ZL.com was created in May of 1996, and the domain name is privately registered. The domain name is parked and it is currently listed for sale via Sedo, although there does not appear to be an asking price listed at Sedo. I checked through my email records, and I do not see any references to this being listed for sale via any domain broker newsletters I receive regularly.

The UDRP was filed by a company called (more…) → Read More


Hug.com & Hug.net Subject of UDRP

Hug.com UDRP

I did a double take this afternoon when looking at the World Intellectual Property Organization's website. A UDRP was filed against Hug.com and Hug.net. The case is WIPO Case D2016-1620.

As far as I am concerned, Hug.com and Hug.net are about as descriptive as you can get. Both domain names appear to be owned by the same owner, a registrant based in California, according to the Whois information. If you visit the domain names, you will see the domain names have a for sale form on them. Selling descriptive domain names is a perfectly legitimate business model. Hug.com was created in 1995 and Hug.net was created in 1999.

According to DomainIQ, Hug.com has a (more…) → Read More


EDP.com Subject of UDRP

EDP.com UDRP

A UDRP has been filed against the valuable three letter EDP.com domain name. The case was filed at the World Intellectual Property Organization, and it is WIPO case D2016-1536. The complainant in this UDRP is a company called EDP - Energias de Portugal, S.A.

Whois records show that the domain name is currently owned by a registrant in China. When I attempted to visit EDP.com, the domain name did not resolve for me. I looked at Archive.org, and I do not see any archived records since 2014.

I did a Historical Whois search at DomainTools, and here is where it gets a bit interesting. According to (more…) → Read More


John Cusack Files UDRP on JohnCusack.com (Updated)

JohnCusack.com UDRP

I noticed an interesting UDRP filing I want to share with you. John P. Cusack filed a UDRP against JohnCusack.com. The UDRP was filed at the World Intellectual Property Organization, and it is WIPO Case D2016-1460.

I presume the UDRP was filed by the American actor John Cusack, although this is not confirmed. The JohnCusack.com domain name has a registration date of April 13, 2003, and the domain name is currently registered under privacy, so I am unsure of who owns the domain name. At the present time, the domain name is parked, and there is a link at the top of the landing page that says "The domain johncusack.com may be for sale by its owner!"

Here is where things get a bit interesting. When I clicked the link, I was taken to a landing page announcing that the domain name is for sale for just $1,500. You can have a look at the landing page here: (more…) → Read More
