This time the case computes.
Search and data company Wolfram has won a Uniform Rapid Suspension (URS) case for Wolfram.ceo…on the second try.
It lost the first case because it filed the case as Wolfram Research, Inc. The panelist noted that the trademarks mentioned in the case were owned by Wolfram Group LLC.
So Wolfram refiled the case as Wolfram Group LLC and won this time around.
The registrant, Andrew Davis, claimed that Wolfram is a common name. The panel didn’t buy his argument, and given Davis’ collection of .ceo domain names this is probably fair.
There are lots of grounds for appealing a decision in URS. What I find unique about this case is that it wasn’t an appeal. In fact, it wasn’t technically a refiling. After all, two different complainants filed the cases.
