CP Org Files UDRP Against Other CP Org Domain Name

I noticed an interesting UDRP dispute involving what appears to be two Cerebral Palsy organizations. A UDRP was filed against the UCPA.org domain name. The UDRP was filed at the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPI), and it is WIPO Case D2019-1920.

When I first looked at the UCPA.org website, I was a bit confused. It looks like that domain name is being used by an entity called United Cerebral Palsy Alliance (UCPA). The domain name appears to be fully developed, and a note in the footer of the website states that it is a “501(c)(3) non-profit organization.”

The complainant in the UDRP is listed as United Cerebral Palsy, Inc. A Google search shows that that organization uses UCP.org for its website. I can see that United Cerebral Palsy, Inc. has a GuideStar profile, but I do not see one for United Cerebral Palsy Alliance (it is possibly I missed it though).

Here are the missions of each entity:

United Cerebral Palsy Alliance
“The United Cerebral Palsy Alliance is an advocacy organization for all individuals with Cerebral Palsy and those that care for them.”

United Cerebral Palsy, Inc.
“United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) is one of the nation’s leading organizations serving and advocating for the more than 54 million Americans with disabilities. Its mission is to advance the independence, productivity, and full citizenship of people with disabilities through an affiliate network…”

It will be interesting to see what happens with this UDRP, as it would appear both are organizations that aim to help people with Cerebral Palsy. If anyone has more insight, please feel free to inform me. In the meantime, I will keep an eye on the UDRP proceeding.
