Olsen.com UDRP Complaint is Denied

0

A company called Olsen Holding GmbH of Hamburg, Germany filed a UDRP against the Olsen.com domain name. The UDRP was filed at the World Intellectual Property Organization. Olsen.com currently forwards to PerfectName.com where there is a landing page offering the domain name for sale for what I believe is a reasonable price of $68,680.98.

Although the domain owner did not respond to the UDRP complaint and put up an active defense, the panelist (Dawn Osborne) ruled against the complainant. The rationale for ruling in favor of the domain owner is that Olsen is a common last name and the complainant did not show evidence that the domain name was registered to target the complainant.

The most important aspect of the decision can be found in the section involving registration and use of the domain name in bad faith: (more…) → Read More

0



A UDRP was filed at the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) for the Jolly.com domain name. The case ID is WIPO Case D2018-0924.

Jolly.com is a descriptive domain name that was registered over 20 years ago in 1997. The domain name is registered under Whois privacy at GoDaddy. If you visit the domain name, you can see the standard "Future home of something quite cool" coming soon landing page that is provided by the domain registrar. I do not see any monetization on the landing page.

Prior to the domain name going under Whois privacy in 2008, the domain name was registered to an entity called (more…) → Read More


Dribble.com Subject of UDRP Filing by Company Called Dribbble (Updated)

8



The one word Dribble.com domain name is the subject of a UDRP that has been filed at the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). The UDRP is WIPO Case D2018-0419.

Dribble.com was registered over 20 years ago in 1997, and the domain name is registered to a company in Minnesota. Using DomainTools Historical Whois tool, I was able to see the Whois record as far back as 2002, and it looks like the same entity owned the domain name back then. When I visited Dribble.com this morning, I saw a default landing page with PPC advertising that appears to be generated by the hosting company (Host Monster) and not managed or controlled by the domain name owner.

The UDRP was filed by a company called Dribbble Holdings Ltd. You will notice the company has 3 b's in its name rather than the correct spelling of "dribble." The company's website can be found on the exact match Dribbble.com domain name. When I visited the Dribbble.com website, I saw (more…) → Read More

0



A UDRP was filed against the valuable three letter .com domain name, OST.com. The UDRP was filed at the World Intellectual Property Organization, and it is listed as Case Details for WIPO Case D2018-0418.

OST.com is a 20 year old domain name, having been created in 1997. For many years, OST.com had been owned by an Arizona company. In January of this year, the Whois record for this domain name went under Whois privacy. As a result, the ownership of OST.com is unclear to me.

When I visited OST.com just now, I was forwarded to (more…) → Read More


AEX.com, Used for Cryptocurrency Platform, Subject of UDRP (Updated)

2



A UDRP has been filed against the high value AEX.com domain name. The UDRP was filed by Euronext N.V. at the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). The case number is WIPO Case D2018-0348.

It looks like AEX.com is a developed website and business related to cryptocurrency. The AEX about us page states that "AEX (www.aex.com) is a global and professional Digital Asset Exchange Platform." It looks like users can trade and/or manage Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, and other cryptocurrencies. Based on this Reddit post, it looks like the platform launched in November of 2017.

According to the DomainTools Whois History tool, the AEX.com domain name had been owned by Anything.com as recently as May of 2017. Knowing a bit about Anything.com and its domain portfolio as well as some of its publicly known sales, it must have sold for a substantial amount of money. Regardless of its provenance, AEX.com is a valuable domain name.

Euronext owns and operates on the less optimal ccTLD domain name, (more…) → Read More


Rioja.com Subject of UDRP at WIPO (Updated)

2



A UDRP was filed at the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) over the Rioja.com domain name. This is WIPO Case D2018-0168.

According to Vivino.com, "Rioja is arguably Spain's top wine region and is one of only two regions classified under the Denominación de Origen Calificada (DOCa) system. Its two most important red grapes are Tempranillo and Garnacha." The Rioja.com domain name was created in November of 1996, making the domain name more than 20 years old. The domain name is registered under Whois privacy and has been like that for more than 5 years, so I am unsure about who owns the domain name.

Rioja.com is parked with pay per click advertising links related to the region and some other unrelated links. There should not be (more…) → Read More
