Vanity.com Lost In A UDRP Despite Pending Federal Court Case: Asking $1M For A Domain Is Bad Faith | The Domains

How could this happen? How does someone qualify to become part of the UDRP process? Idiotic.

In a case that should be VERY troubling for all domain holders the a one member UDRP panel just awarded the domain name Vanity.com to a Vanity Shop of Grand Forks, Inc, a trademark holder, despite the fact that the domain holder already filed a case in Federal Court asking for a declaratory judgement that is was not infringing on the complainant’s trademark.

So lets be clear here.

The UDRP panel could have, and in our opinion should have, not even ruled in this UDRP since the domain holder ALREADY filed a case in federal court. but decided to make a ruling anyway and decided to take the domain away.

Having read the decision the decisive factor seems to be the domain holder offered to sell the domain for $1,000,000.

Also note that the complainant wasn’t the world famous Vanity Magazine, but a small clothing store out of North Dakota which grew into a 200 store chain.
