Dot-brand top level domains will be different in the next new TLD round

Domain Name Wire - Thu, 06/20/2024 - 15:47

Applicants in the next round will come armed with plans to use them (I hope). I got an alert today of another dot-brand top level domain name owner pulling the plug on its domain name. Dabur, a company that sells Ayurveda (traditional medicine in India) products, decided to cancel its .dabur domain name. Oddly, the […]

Would this incentivized auction model work in the domain name business?

Domain Name Wire - Wed, 06/19/2024 - 16:45

Company pitches a model that provides an incentive to place bids. Picture this: you’re bidding in a domain auction. It goes on for hours, and you end up capitulating to some other domain investor. But you don’t walk away empty-handed. That’s the idea behind GBM’s auction model. The company’s auction technology incentivizes people to bid […]

GSF.com cybersquatting dispute should have been reverse domain name hijacking

Domain Name Wire - Tue, 06/18/2024 - 16:40

The domain name owner was at least owed an explanation. A guy named Greg Foltz registered the domain GSF.com in 1993. He used it for his family and business (they are his initials, after all). Over thirty years later, Golden State Foods Corp comes along and files a UDRP against the domain name, claiming cybersquatting. […]

Why UDRP panels should consider the original registration date of domains

Domain Name Wire - Tue, 06/11/2024 - 18:07

The original registration date can shed light on why the current registrant might have acquired the domain name. Dates matter in the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP). If the current registrant of a domain name registered it before the Complainant existed or had any trademark rights in the name at issue, it’s impossible […]
