UDRP Filed Against XMY.com (Updated)
A UDRP has been filed against the three letter .com domain name XMY.com. The UDRP was filed at the World Intellectual Property Organization, and it is WIPO Case D2016-0961. The complainant appears to be a Chinese entity and is listed as 福建省华世伟业信息科技股份.
XMY.com is currently registered at eName to a entity that appears to be based in China. The landing page for XMY.com is in Chinese, but I can see an English sentence on the page that says, “This domain name is for sale.” XMY.com has a creation date of January 19, 2000.
I did a few historical Whois searches at DomainTools, and it looks like this domain name may have changed hands a few times since 2012. From what I see, the registrants since that time all appear to be based in China.
I did a Google search for the complainant, as listed in the WIPO database, and I couldn’t find much information. This is likely due to my lack of knowledge of the Chinese language. As such, I am not sure what the complainant’s connection to XMY.com is or why it believes it has rights to the XMY.com domain name.
My guess is that the UDRP decision will be rendered in Chinese, and we will have to rely on Google Translate to get an idea of the facts of this case. I’ll be keeping my eye on this UDRP proceeding since it involves a high value 3 letter .com domain name.
Update: According to UDRPSearch.com, the complaint was denied, although the decision has not yet been published. I will update this if there is anything noteworthy in the decision discussion.
