    Melbourne IT Digital Brand Services goes into overdrive with large client.

    Royal Bank of Scotland and its National Westminster Bank Plc have decided to go bulk in cracking down on cybersquatters. The company just filed 34 UDRP cases covering 35 domain names in one fell swoop.

    This is hardly the bank’s first foray into UDRP. UDRPSearch.com lists 133 cases (including the new ones) filed by Royal Bank of Scotland and 116 filed by National Westminster Bank plc.

    Based on RBS’ previous filings, I’d bet this mass filing is the work of Melbourne IT Digital Brand Services.

    Melbourne has landed quite a few clients who are willing to spend big bucks on UDRP. One of its clients is Lego, which is closing in on 500 cases filed since 2009.

    Other notable Melbourne IT DBS clients include AB Electrolux and Twitter.
