Domain name news and thoughts.
It’s been a busy day, so I’m going to summarize some of the things I haven’t gotten to yet…
– There were a lot of UDRP cases published today in which the domain owner won, including Fulltime.com, CanDoBetter.com, and intertekqeshm.com. There was also an interesting case about cult leader Christopher Marc Nemelka, who lost a claim for chrisnemelka.com. This case is interesting because the respondent managed to remain anonymous and the panel found that accepting donations didn’t show bad faith. John Berryhill handled the case.
– I’ve made a lot of good friends in the domain industry. Today I want to give a shout out to Elliot Silver. He went out of his way in the middle of the day to take care of something for me that could only be handled in NYC. Thanks Elliot!
– I wrote a guest article about .xxx for TechCrunch over the weekend. You can read it here.
– We have a bit of a drought between domain conferences now. The next “major” conference I know of is DOMAINfest coming this June in Barcelona.
