Two Important UDRP Decisions


Domain Name Wire is reporting on two important UDRP decisions that were announced in the past two days. and were both retained by the current owners after large companies filed a complaint for each of these (clearly) generic domain names. It’s great to see good UDRP decisions go in favor of a generic domain owner.

Shame on the legal eagles who thought they could take possession of these two domain names simply because they had a mark for each of these terms. Hopefully other law firms will read up on these decisions before filing a UDRP for a generic domain name.

    Always encouraging to see, especially in light of the Snowe Bill potential impact on the industry.
