    Hostile Domain Name Takeover? Lawyers taking over your domains? There is hope!



    Good news for everyone that had a domain name taken over by a lawyer/company just because they claimed the domain name is similar to something that they consider a trademark and other crap. Excerpt from the full article:

    On May 21, 2012 the National Arbitration Forum, (NAF), determined that unless a trademark licensee owns a registered or common law trademark that is confusingly similar to the disputed domain name, it cannot demand the transfer of that domain name under the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy, (UDRP).

    The NAF also determined that the mere fact that a complainant does not satisfy a confusion test, does not automatically mean the complainant is engaging in reverse domain name hijacking, when an individual or organization uses the UDRP in bad faith to deprive a registered domain-name owner of their domain.
