Group owns .org version of domain name.
The charity that owns WalkTheWalk.org has filed a UDRP against Frank Schilling’s Name Administration Inc. for the domain name WalkTheWalk.com.
Walk the Walk Worldwide raises money to raise awareness about breast cancer. It certainly has an attention-grabbing approach: it gets women to walk marathons in bras to raise money.
The United Kingdom charity has a couple trademarks for the term, including for a logo and simply “walk the walk”. The trademark for merely the words was filed in the U.S. under 44(e) (as it it already had a foreign trademark) in 2007. Its United Kingdom trademark for “Walk the Walk” was filed in April 2005 and entered into the register in October 2006.
WalkTheWalk.org was registered way back in 1999. Although it was registered under a different name, it appears to be the same group that now runs the charity (based on Archive.org archives of the site). Which begs the question: why 14 years later?
Schilling has owned the domain name since at least February 2005, and possibly earlier.
