Complainant: Complainant is probably NICE CAR, INC. CORPORATION from Colorado.

Why the UDRP complaint is bound to fail: The domain name was registered in 2000. There is only one registered trademark in USPTO and that is for the mark “nice car” from the company above. The trademark was registered in February 6, 2007 although the company claims that it first used the mark in commerce in 1987. The domain name is generic and unless the complainant can prove that the respondent based in South Korea knew the complainant before registering the domain name and actually registered this generic domain with complainant in mind then the complaint will fail. The domain is currently listed for sale for $100,000.
