UDRP Follows $3,875 NameJet Sale

A UDRP was filed against the domain name at the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). The UDRP is WIPO Case D2020-1354, and it appears to have been filed within the past couple of days.

To me, seems like a pretty generic domain name that could be used to sell “cheap stuff.” Likely because of the potential usage for this descriptive domain name, sold for $3,875 at NameJet in March of this year, according to NameBio. Based on the “” email address in the historical Whois record at DomainTools from February 26th, it appears to have been an expiry auction. In fact, was promoted by NameJet in its newsletter, even earning the honor of being one of two domain names listed in the email subject:

From what I can see using current Whois records at DomainTools, it looks like the registrant is based in India. When I visited, I saw an error page that says, “Error. Page cannot be displayed. Please contact your service provider for more details. (28)

The complainant in the UDRP is listed as Cheapstuff, Inc. A Google search for “Cheapstuff, Inc.” showed me a Twitter profile matching the name, although the camel case is different on the WIPO case page and the name of the Twitter account. That aside, the Twitter profile was created in 2009, and it has a link to For what it is worth, that Twitter account does not appear to have tweeted since 2013.

If I was to make a guess, it is possible that the complainant in the UDRP is the former registrant of Perhaps the domain name expired, and the complainant is trying to get the domain name back via UDRP. I am not sure if this will be successful since is so generic it seems like it would be difficult to prove the registrant bought the domain name in bad faith and the fact that it is not being used yet seems like hardly enough evidence to show it is being used in bad faith. The complainant will need to prove both to win a UDRP.

We recently saw a UDRP win for the town of Secaucus, New Jersey when it filed a UDRP after letting expire. In both of these cases, the domain names were auctioned. I believe this case is different though, because in the case, because “the disputed domain name resolved to a website which displayed outdated information and content from the Complainant’s website.” From what I can see right now, the registrant of does not appear to be using the domain name in an infringing manner (unless I missed something).

I will keep an eye on this UDRP because it involves a valuable domain name that was acquired at auction, and that is similar to many domain names won by domain investors in expiry auctions that close every day.

  1. yes elliot – my email from fabulous going back to 2006 had close variants – so that is out.
    i looked at the archive as well – and even though the site was live back then and had some kind a leg. looking ph number – it was one of those referral sites – pretend affiliate sites
    regardless – yes – no fabulous – and likely no roy.

  2. the original owners filing ?..
    no registered TM on the USPTO
    maybe some other country ?
    someone messed up – too bad

  3. Using DT archived websites, the website showed up the end of 2008. The phone number on the developed site is the same phone number of a pr release in 2013 for cheapstuff,inc .

    Also, before 2008, the domain was being offered at $ 25k on a older landing page.

    Speculating it expired and they could not renew it. Maybe, they lost access to netsol account because the email address used at cheapstuff (guessing).

    I do not see any TM in uspto. the original owner is located in calif.
