#Adora .com : #Domain name registered in 1996 lost via the #UDRP process

The domain name Adora.com was registered in 1996 by Pearl One Media. Through the years, the domain displayed technology-related content including web hosting services.

#EmLife .com : Common law trademark used in grabbing a 1996 #domain registration

The domain name EmLife.com was registered in 1996, and twenty-three years later, it was lost via the UDRP process. The Complainant was EMindful Inc., a company that asserted common law rights to the EM LIFE mark; that’s a weak approach, as opposed to a registered trademark. What’s even more strange, is that these claimed rights […]

#CloudInsure .com : #Domain was registered before the #trademark; UDRP included a chronology of events

UDRP cases that involve a claimed registered trademark usually emphasize the mark’s fame at the time the domain was registered. In cases where the domain’s registration predates that of the mark, it’s a good idea to outline the chronology of events. The decision for the UDRP case on CloudInsure.com incorporates such a chronology, whether it […]

#Regenxhealth .com : Domain #UDRP ends with Reverse #Domain Name Hijacking finding

The owner of the aged CVCV domain, Bulu.com, lost it via the UDRP process at the National Arbitration Forum.
