Yoyo : Email on a string.

In the two years since the launch of the dot .Email gTLD, a British company, Yoyo Email Ltd. made news repeatedly.

Citing a pending, yet non-disclosable to the public service, Yoyo Email Ltd. registered a few thousand .Email domains, many – if not most – of which matched corporate names, or trademarks of companies.

In 2014 and 2015, many UDRP cases were filed against the company, the majority of which were won by the Complainants.

It seems that in 2016, Yoyo Email Ltd. continues to witness its domains getting involved in UDRP cases.

The latest UDRP was filed collectively for 7 .Email domains:

HOMEAWAY.EMAIL
LATEROOM.EMAIL
LATEROOMS.EMAIL
AIRTOURS.EMAIL
AMEY.EMAIL
POKERSTAR.EMAIL
POKERSTARS.EMAIL

Dr. Thomas Schafft, panelist at the Arbitration Center for Internet Disputes (ADR), noted that the Respondent’s lengthy response exceeded the 5,000 word limit.

Mr. Schafft also stated the following:

“The Panel finds that the Respondent’s deliberate registration of thousands of domain names comprising a third party trade mark under the <.email> gTLD was not in connection with a “bona fide” offering of services within the meaning of that term in paragraph 4(c)(i) of the UDRP nor “fair use” under paragraph 4(c)(iii) of the UDRP. It was also bad faith registration and use within the scope of paragraph 4(b)(ii) of the UDRP. “

The decision was made to transfer the domains to the following respective Complainants:

HomeAway.com, Inc
LateRooms Limited
LateRooms Limited
Thomas Cook UK Limited
Amey plc
Amaya Services Limited
Amaya Services Limited
