Company files case against Roy Messer’s Snug.com.
Some people just don’t get it.
Consider Charon International Trading Limited, makers of The Snugg iPad cases.
The company owns TheSnugg.com, and desperately wants a shorter domain.
So in February it filed a UDRP against the owner of Snugg.com. The UDRP was dead on arrival since the company just registered its trademark in 2011 and the owner of the domain registered the domain in 1999. The owner of the domain didn’t even respond to the case and still won.
Undeterred, the company has now filed a UDRP against long time domain investor Roy Messer for his domain Snug.com.
I’m serious. You can’t make this stuff up.
Like Snugg.com, Snug.com was registered in 1999.
In the last case the panel didn’t find Charon International guilty of reverse domain name hijacking. Hopefully this time around they will, as now the company has no excuse for filing a case like this.
