Chrysler Files UDRP For Nearly 1,000 Domain Names

I was checking out the recent UDRP filings at the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), and I saw that Chrysler filed a UDRP for almost 1,000 domain names. In total, there were 940 domain names listed in this single UDRP filing.

The domain names in question appear to contain the names of a number of Chrysler brands, including Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Dodge, Chrysler, and Jeep. The domain names are in a variety of extensions, including com, net, info, mobi…etc.

I checked out a few of the domain names to see how they are being used, and the Fiat names I checked are forwarded to FiatSale.com and the Alfa Romeo names I checked are forwarded to AlfaRomeoSales.com. Interestingly, those two domain names appear to be registered to  a car dealership. Neither one of these landing page domain names are included in the UDRP filing.

It will be interesting to see how this UDRP plays out. At $10/name that’s almost $10k/year in domain names.

  1. Speaking of UDRP has anyone noticed Obama was too unorganized to secure the domain for his new foundation “Organizing for action”. Com, net, and org all taken. Adding insult to injury the .net forwards to the NRA. How does this happen in 2013? Don’t the know to tegister their name before going public? What fools.
