Two three letter .com domains have been hit with UDRP filings.
Australian fashion accessories company ELK Accessories Pty Ltd. has filed a UDRP case in an effort to get the domain name Elk.com. The company’s web site is elkaccessories.com.au.
Since this seems like such a long shot attempt to snag a three letter domain name (that is also a word), I assumed the whois history for this domain would show that perhaps the company used to own it and it was stolen.
But I can find no such evidence. Although the domain has changed hands multiple times, all of the owners I’ve found since 2001 have been in the United States.
I’ve reached out to both the complainant and respondent for comment.
INW.com was also just hit with a UDRP. In this case I know that no shenanigans are going on with the respondent since the domain is owned by Nat Cohen’s Telepathy.
Cohen is no stranger to finding his valuable three letter domain names under attack. He has successfully defended daf.com, toh.com, and uwe.com in UDRP cases.
