Raja.com Subject of UDRP

10


This afternoon, I noticed that a UDRP was filed at the World Intellectual Property Organization against the four letter Raja.com domain name. The UDRP is WIPO Case D2019-1680, and it looks like it was filed this week. According to a translation tool I used, the Hindi word Raja means King in English.

The Raja.com domain name was created in August of 1995, making it almost 24 years old. The domain name is currently parked via Sedo. You can see a screenshot of the landing page below. I do not see the domain name listed for sale via Sedo though.

At the end of 2017, I wrote about the IMI.com UDRP decision. Shortly after the decision in favor of the complainant was published, I labeled it “stunning.” It looks like the registrant of the domain name filed a lawsuit shortly after losing the UDRP, and from what I can tell, it looks like he won. The case is still ongoing (more on that below).

The court docket is quite long, and it looks like it made it all the way to a jury trial. The jurors were asked several questions, with the two most important (and non-contingent ones) below:

Some domain investors received an email from Enom’s legal department yesterday notifying them about a subpoena that was received by the company. Enom sends these emails when the recipient’s information was found during an internal (Enom) search for documents related to the subpoena. If an investor received this email, it could be related to a Scratch Foundation lawsuit that was written about by Andrew Allemann earlier this year.
