Companies belatedly pursue .co domain names.
World Intellectual Property Organization has handed down its first two UDRP decisions for .co domain names since .co was relaunched over the summer.
In two separate decisions, WIPO panelists found in favor of the complainants for lafitness.co and tilda.co.
Twenty-one .co UDRP cases have been filed since August. In some cases the domain owner handed the domain name over voluntarily. For example, Booz Allen Hamilton, Inc. filed a complaint for booz.co that was terminated after the domain name was transferred to the consulting firm.
Recently filed cases include CLS RÃ©my Cointreau going after Cointreau.co, Imperial Tobacco Canada Limited filing for imperialtobacco.co, and travel site Get Away Today.Com Inc. asking for getawaytoday.co. In each case the complainant owns the .com equivalent of the .co domain.
