Michael Gleissner owner of several companies such as Bigfoot, Fashion One Television, and CKL Holdings has lost several UDRP complaints.
He is using thousands of shell companies and hundreds of trademarks registered in various countries all over the world trying to steal valuable domains, such as zero.com owned by Google, from their rightful owners. He has so far failed with 6 UDRP loses and 4 terminations. He still has one UDRP complaint pending.
Michael Gleissner is filing these frivolous complaints with the help of his thousands shell companies and his hundreds of questionable trademarks all over the world.
Of course this all would not be possible without the help of his in house counsel at Bigfoot Entertainment, Jonathan Grant Morton and Roman Popov, and his trusted Trademarks Manager Marco Notarnicola. Marco claimed to be an expert in “manipulation of TMs and common law marks to achieve UDRP “reverse domain name hijacking” in his LinkedIn profile. (He has since changed that to “administration of trademarks and domains mechanics involving UDRP procedures.” but the screenshots will live forever.)

Thank you for pulling this all together in one place.
Can the three strikes you’re out (3 RDNH decisions) apply to the legal reps or just the complainant?
There is no such rule. Sorry…
Something for the UDRP review then. Is a DRS policy on the respondent side, automatic presumption abuse finding three or more cases in a two year period.
How do can one find out someone has file a UDRP against one of your domains?
You get an email from the center. So it is a good idea to have correct whois details.
Thank you for reporting this and laying it all out.
You’re helping anyone that is dealing with Gleissner and his gang of lawyers.
Thanks for this good research.
