Google gets GoogleGlass.com without a UDRP decision

Yesterday I wrote about how Google won a UDRP Complaint at the National Arbitration Forum for the domain name GlassGoogle.com. Google had an easy UDRP win as the Respondent failed to submit a Response in this proceeding. Google used it’s “google” trademark registration to win the dispute.

Today, I saw that a UDRP complaint for the domain name GoogleGlass.com was withdrawn at the National Arbitration Forum. This was done because the domain has already been transferred to Google. The owner offered to transfer the domain to Google after it got the notice for the UDRP complaint and before a Panelist was appointed and a decision was out. This way Google agreed to withdraw the complaint.

Google probably went after this domain name as the Project Glass’s release is around the corner. Project Glass is a research and development program by Google to develop an augmented reality head-mounted display (HMD). The projected release date for the glasses is early 2013.

Amazingly Respondent registered the disputed domain name GoogleGlass.com on October 2010 long before the “project glass” was announced. This was also the case for the domain GlassGoogle.com.

While Google owns the domain name GoogleGlasses.com it doesn’t own these domains: ProjectGlassGoogle.com
GoogleProjectGlass.com
GoogleGlass.com
GoogleGlasses.net
GoogleGlasses.org
GoogleGlasses.info
GoogleGlasses.biz
GoogleGlasses.us
Google-Glass.com
Google-Glasses.com

One down, a few more to go. Which one is next?

UDRP DISGRACE: Mclaren.net transferred while complaint for Mclaren.biz is naturally denied

Complainant McLaren Health Care Corporation got a trademark registration for the mark “mclaren” on October 16, 2012 so they thought it would be a good idea to file UDRP complaints for every domain name incorporating this very common last name “Mclaren” less than a month later. And for any other last name that is close in spelling to Mclaren.

It was only natural that from all the complaints they filed for various domains that they would find a Panelist that would disregard any common sense and UDRP rules and find in favor of this Health “Care” Corporation that pretty much unknown worldwide. Of course he did. Because otherwise this new client for the National Arbitration Forum would not file for any more complaints and will cost the forum and the panelist a lot of money.

McLaren Health Care Corporation filed for 9 complaints since it got the trademark registration. I will only talk about the obvious last name complaints for domains registered for 8 to 16 years before the trademark registration.

First of all the McLaren Health Care Corporation filed for a complaint in order to steal the  domain mclaren.biz away from it’s rightful owner for the past 8 years Alister Mclaren / Mclaren & Mckechnie. Of course Panelist Mr. Hugues G. Richard denied the complaint but before doing that questioned Complainant‘s tactics of not sending a Cease and Desist Letter before filing this ridiculous complaint:

“Before considering the claim on its merits, the Panel would like to discuss the absence of any cease and desist letter in this matter. Before a matter is taken to a tribunal, it is useful to consider sending a cease and desist, which gives an opportunity for the parties to settle their dispute and avoid unnecessary procedures. Had the Complainant done so, this matter may have been resolved through amicable means. The Respondent acknowledged that he would have responded timely to such a letter and would have taken the steps necessary to rectify the matter. Parties are encouraged to communicate with one another in order to settle matters before filing a complaint.”

The Panelist explained why he dismissed the complaint:

“The Respondent, as far back as June 29, 2010, has made preparations in order to provide web content under the <mclaren.biz> domain name.”

“Furthermore, the Respondent is commonly known under the McLaren name. This name is also reflected in the Respondent’s business.”

Then the McLaren Health Care Corporation filed for a complaint in order to steal the  domain mclaren.net away from it’s rightful owner for the past 8 years and with the generous help of the Panelist Tyrus R. Atkinson, Jr. it succeeded in this grand theft.

Both Mclaren.net and Mclaren.biz were supposedly parked but both respondents claimed that these were holding pages put there by the hosting/registrar company and they had no control of the page and were not earning any money.

Respondent claimed in an email that his surname is McLaren but did not submit a formal Response in this proceeding claiming that Respondent received the Complaint just before the Christmas period.

I can’t even began to think how this so called Panelist thought when he took away a common last name domain name like mclaren.net from an owner that had registered the domain 8 years before complainant’s trademark registration. The complainant claimed that it was well known in the local area of Dallas before filling for the trademark registration but common law marks have geographic limitations. How in the world was the owner from Essex Great Britain was supposed to know about a local health care company thousands of miles away. Just saying the the respondent registered the domain name mclaren.net with the complainant in mind is an insult to common sense, law and of course the UDRP rules where any panelist is allowed to piss on without any control and consequences. Panelist Tyrus R. Atkinson, Jr. must be very proud of this ridiculous decision that he produced. He will make a lot of money on the future complaints filed from the frivolous “Health Care” Corporation. I will not go into any more details of this so called decision because frankly it is not worth my time

This so called “McLaren Health Care Corporation” has filled more complaints. One is against a company called McLarens Young International (MYI) that is using the domain name mclarens.com. Maybe Tyrus would like to decide this case as well?

And last but not least “McLaren Health Care Corporation” has filed for a complaint against Buy Domains that owns the domain mclarens.net and the totally unrelated to the mark and last name mclaren, domain: mcclarin.com. Mcclarin is a completely different last name. But of course “panelists” like Tyrus give these companies the nerve to file complaints for these domains. I hope Buy Domains sues this Corporation.

.bank and .insurance gTLD applicant asks for an extension to the objection filing deadline

Craig Schwartz that is the Director of fTLD Registry Services, LLC sent a letter to Ms. Christine Willett, General Manager of the New gTLD Program at ICANN asking for an extension to the objection filing deadline of March 31, 2013.

fTLD Registry Services, LLC (fTLD) was formed by The Financial Services Roundtable and the American Bankers Association to operate gTLDs to serve the global financial services community and other communities. On May 24, 2012, fTLD submitted applications to ICANN to operate the .bank and .insurance gTLDs. .bank has one more applicant while .insurance has another three applicants besides fTLD.

fTLD said that in light of the fourth delay for publishing the results of the string similarity review and the critical role it may play regarding an applicant’s decision to file an objection, ICANN should quickly consider a reasonable (e.g., 45-60 days) extension to the objection filing deadline. fTLD explained that in the absence of an extension to the objection period, which in their view would be unacceptable, fTLD and other applicants will be forced to spend time and resources preparing objections that may ultimately be unnecessary after the string similarity results are announced. fTLD asked ICANN to announce an extension to the objection filing deadline as soon as possible.

Domain Enterprises.biz lost in UDRP while parked at Internet Traffic

Complainant Enterprise Holdings, Inc. submitted a Complaint to the National Arbitration Forum on December 10, 2012 for the domain name Enterprises.biz.

Enterprise Holdings, Inc. from St. Louis, MO, USA, is the owner of the ENTERPRISE mark which it began using at least as early as 1974 in connection with a vehicle rental business. Enterprise is the largest car rental provider to international travelers visiting North America. Enterprise Holdings official website is Enterprise.com.

Respondent DSTR Acquisition VII, LLC from Washington, USA failed to submit a Response in this proceeding and ultimately lost the domain name because the disputed domain name was used to resolve to a website which provides hyperlinks to car rental services, including Complainant’s websites and Complainant’s competitors. The domain name is parked at Internet Traffic:

entrprises.bizThe enterprises.biz domain name was registered on March 27, 2002. Complainant waited for more than 10 years to file this complaint but did so when the domain started displaying rental car ads.

The complaint could have easily been
denied if it wasn’t for these ads. That is why I have been asking Internet Traffic to provide a more general parking template. This is one of the reasons I haven’t moved all my domains at Internet Traffic. They don’t offer a truly generic lander. If you choose the General category and the General Sub-category you end up with a lander that is mostly focused on business and financial terms. That is dangerous if there a financial related trademark that is similar to your generic domain name. Even if you check the box “specific keyword” you don’t get a general lander. This unpredictability is what I fear. The people at Internet Traffic are working on creating a category like this but it has been a few months since I asked them.

Panelist Darryl C. Wilson ordered that the enterprises.biz domain name be TRANSFERRED from Respondent to Complainant because:

  1. Complainant bases its rights on registrations of the ENTERPRISE mark, which Complainant uses in its business of automotive repairs and short-term rental/leasing of automobiles and trucks. Complainant further contends that Respondent’s <enterprises.biz> domain name is confusingly similar to Respondent’s mark because it fully incorporates and misspells Complainant’s ENTERPRISE mark.  The Panel notes that in addition to the term “enterprises” the domain name features the generic top-level domain (“gTLD”) “.biz.”
  2. The Panel finds that this evidence shows that Respondent is not commonly known by <enterprises.biz> domain name pursuant to Policy ¶ 4(c)(ii). Complainant claims that Respondent is using the disputed domain name to resolve to a website which provides hyperlinks to car rental services, including Complainant’s websites and Complainant’s competitors.  Complainant claims that when Internet users click any of the links on the resolving website, they are taken to another website which features more descriptive hyperlinks to both Complainant’s and Complainant’s competitors websites.  The Panel notes that both content pages of the <enterprises.biz> domain name provided by Complainant illustrate that the domain name is being used to host an array of hyperlinks to related and competing business, including Complainant’s own website.  See Complainant’s Exhibit 5.  The Panel finds that the Respondent’s use of the domain name to profit through click-through hyperlinks is not a Policy ¶ 4(c)(i) bona fide offering, nor a Policy ¶ 4(c)(iii) legitimate noncommercial or fair use.
  3. Complainant asserts that Respondent is using the disputed domain name to confuse Internet users into believing Complainant is affiliated or a sponsor of the disputed domain name.  Complainant claims that Respondent set up the disputed domain name to gain click-through profits whenever confused Internet users used the hyperlinks on the website.  Complainant argues that the confusing similarity between the domain name and Complainant’s mark (and Complainant’s registered domain names associated with the mark such) makes it clear that Respondent seeks to profit whenever Internet users mistakenly go to the <enterprises.biz> domain name instead of Complainant’s <enterprise.com> domain name.  The Panel again notes that the content of the disputed domain name’s resolving websites is dominated by hyperlinks to websites controlled by both Complainant and Complainant’s competitors. The Panel finds that Respondent has registered and is using the <enterprises.biz> domain name in bad faith pursuant to Policy ¶ 4(b)(iv).

BIN.net didn’t sell at NameJet – Reserve was not met

The domain name BIN.net didn’t sell at NameJet. Highest bid was $3,500 USD but ironically the reserve price wasn’t met. BIN is used as an acronym for a “Buy It Now” price which in this case was not met.

The auction had 211 bids from 203 bidders. There were 13 bidders with a $1,000 bid or higher.

Frank Schilling’s SalleDeBain.com (bathroom) sells for 60,000 USD at Sedo

Frank Schilling’s company Name Admin Inc. (DomainNameSales.com) just sold the domain name SalleDeBain.com for 60,000 USD at Sedo. Salle De Bain is French for bathroom.

The domain was registered in 2001 and whois does not yet show who the buyer is. But the domain name was transferred to a French registrar so the buyer is probably French.

The interesting part is that while the domain was parked at Internet Traffic and was for sale at DomainNameSales.com the domain sold at Sedo. This is probably because the buyer wanted to stay anonymous during the negotiations. This way Sedo made a $9,000 USD commission.
