According to the World Intellectual Property (WIPO) website, a UDRP has been filed on the three letter ABG.com domain name. The complainant in this case is a company called ABG Packaging Corp. The case is WIPO Case D2015-1751.
ABG.com is currently registered to a company called CSC Corporate Domains, Inc. I am not sure if CSC owns ABG.com on its own or if it owns the domain name on behalf of a client. At the time of publication, ABG.com does not resolve to any website. The domain name has a creation date of May 15, 2000, although it had likely been registered before that date.
The domain name had been listed for sale for quite some time via Igloo.com domain brokerage. I don’t see an asking price, so I am not sure what they were asking for it. ABG.com was also listed for sale in the 2011 Snapnames / Moniker DomainFest auction with a reserve price of $250,000 – $500,000. I do not see a record of the domain name selling at auction, and I do not see any historical sales data for the domain name in NameBio’s sale database.
I will be following this UDRP intently. In my opinion, a valuable three letter .com domain name like this that can be an acronym for many things should not be able to be poached via the UDRP system.
