Makers of The Snugg are a bit slow, but I guess they finally got some good advice.
Last week I wrote about how Charon International Trading Limited, maker of The Snugg iPad cases, was about to lose its second UDRP domain dispute.
Technically, I was wrong. Perhaps realizing the error of its ways, Charon has now withdrawn the UDRP it filed for Snug.com. The Snug.com case would have been its second UDRP loss in two tries.
Charon lost its first UDRP when it tried to hijack Snugg.com earlier this year. Snugg.com was registered in 1999, over a decade before Charon registered its trademark.
Undeterred, the company filed a UDRP against domain name investor Roy Messer over Snug.com. Guess when Snug.com was registered? Yeah, 1999.
The upside to Charon withdrawing its UDRP is that Messer no longer has to spend money defending a frivolous case. The downside is that we don’t get to see what harebrained logic Charon tried to use in its case.
