Sex.com, a $50,000 cybersquatting settlement and more.
Legal stuff continued to make headlines in July in the domain biz. ParkingCrew also made things interesting with its acquisition of NameDrive.
Here’s a look back at the top stories on Domain Name Wire last month.
1. Sex.Com lawsuit – company demands domain name over copyright and trademark claims.
2. Work Better Updates – I wrote several posts about the WorkBetter.com cybersquatting lawsuit last month that made the top charts. The owner fought back against the lawsuit and the plaintiff withdrew the suit. Here’s why. I also have a first person account of the case in this podcast.
3. $50,000 penalty for filing frivolous UDRP – Nat Cohen scored a nice settlement after a company filed a UDRP against his three letter domain name.
4. ParkingCrew acquires NameDrive – Consolidation in the domain name parking space continues.
5. WordPress wins another round against Chris Pearson – the Thesis saga continues as WordPress keeps Thesis.com domain name.
