Search tool scans both NAF and WIPO cases.
One of the frustrations I encounter when researching UDRP arbitration cases is that there are two primary databases to search. Most decisions that matter are handled by National Arbitration Forum (NAF) and World Intellectual Property Organizations (WIPO). If I want to look for cases involving a particular person, I have to navigate between both sites to search.
This also annoyed the guys at USpeakWeType Technologies, LLC, which set up DomainFight.net. DomainFight searches both databases by full text, complainant, respondent, domain name, and case number. It saves time by aggregating all results at one site rather than having to visit both the NAF and WIPO web site.
For example, when I wrote about Frank Schilling’s Name Administration winning all of its cases at NAF this year, I could have also search WIPO’s database at the same time. According to a search at DomainFight.net, Name Administration is a perfect 19-0 in UDRP decisions.
USpeakWeType is owned by attorneys at domain law firm Traverse Legal. This isn’t the attorneys’ first foray into domain related technology. Through a separate company, the attorneys acquired DNHour.com a couple months ago at a Sedo auction. DNHour.com is like Digg for the domain industry.
You can hear a radio interview with USpeakWeType’s Enrico Schaefer about the site here.
