Demand Media Gets Into the Other Side of UDRP
Thursday, June 2nd, 2011
Company files complaint to get eHow domain name.
Demand Media (NYSE: DMD) has been on the receiving end of plenty of UDRP cases for domain names. In fact, it may be barred from applying for new top level domain names because of its many losses (technically).
But the company also finds itself on the other side of the table and just filed a case for eHowTravel.com.
The web site appears to be a splog of travel information.
Apparently Demand Media has registered many other top level domains of eHowTravel, including .net, .org, .biz, .info, and .us. With the exception of .us, all of these domains are registered using whois privacy at eNom. My guess is Demand Media (which owns eNom) is the registrant. Demand Media is listed as the registrant of the .us domain since .us domains can’t use privacy services.
