Dune.com hit with UDRP

Generic word targeted with UDRP filing.

The generic domain name Dune.com has been hit with a UDRP at World Intellectual Property Organization.

The case was filed by Dune Holdings Limited, a London-based seller of shoes and accessories. The company uses the web address DuneLondon.com, so it’s no wonder that it wants the shorter domain name.

When I search for “dune” on Google the first five results are about the science fiction novel and movie. Of course, dune is also a mound of sand, as in a sand dune.

The domain name currently has Tucows domain privacy turned on. The most recent non-privacy whois record showed an owner in California.

Dune.com is parked with DomainSponsor, and I don’t see any ads referring to clothing.

    “beyond the rack” ads came up when I went there. I would never park a premium generic and let potential problem ads run on it. Kiss it goodbye if many clothing ads show up. I counted one so far.
