Domain owner that offered to sell domain name to respondent let it expire.
A UDRP panel has refused to transfer the domain name iSound.com back to a previous owner who let the domain name expire.
Jeremy Same filed the case against Richard Weston / dreamGEAR, LLC for the domain name iSound.com.
Same’s company owned the domain name, and previously offered to sell it to the respondent, which has a number of trademarks for i.sound and claims to have sold over $50 million worth of products under the brand name. The respondent had an interest in the domain given its brand and that it uses iSound.net. But apparently the complainant had suggested it wanted seven figures for the domain.
Then the complainant in this case let the domain expire by accident. Someone snapped it up for $8,000 and sold it to the respondent.
I bet the respondent was pleased to get the domain for less than the complainant originally offered. It’s like payback for being greedy the first time.
