Queen.com domain UDRP : High odds that it will be a RDNH finding – here’s why

The Domain King, Rick Schwartz.

The decision on the UDRP against Queen.com, a generic, aged domain owned by Rick Schwartz should be delivered soon.

A poll among DomainGang readers shows that 50% of voters believe a finding of “Reverse Domain Name Hijacking” is probable in this case. While 38% of votes predict a win for the Domain King without a RDNH finding, a notable 13% of votes predict a victory for the Complainant, Knud Jepsen A/S of Denmark.

There is, however, an interesting tidbit that points towards an upcoming solid victory for Rick Schwartz, with high odds for a RDNH finding.

The Queen.com case is decided by a three member panel, presumably the choice of the Respondent, which consists of the following panelists:

  • Brown, Evan D.
  • Harmeling, Hub J. (Presiding)
  • Taylor, Adam

This is where it gets interesting.

Adam Taylor is an experienced WIPO panelist, and we’ve shared several cases that he was either a sole panelist, or as part of a three member panel.

Here is the breakdown:

We have shared a total of 7 UDRP decisions involving Mr. Adam Taylor.

Of those, 6 involved Mr. Taylor “solo” and 1 alongside two other panelists. The latter, was a decision on behalf of the Respondent, involving the domain Dune.com.

Of the 6 solo UDRP cases, Mr. Adam Taylor delivered a finding for the Complainant only once, the obvious case of JohnCusack.com.

In the remaining 5 solo UDRP cases, a finding of Reverse Domain Name Hijacking was delivered 3 times, and 2 without RDNH.

Statistically speaking, the odds are looking good for Rick Schwartz to score a victory, or even a RDNH finding in the Queen.com case! 😀
