Gambling company wants domain name registered in 1993.
A cybersquatting complaint has been filed at World Intellectual Property Organization against the domain name Circus.com.
Circus Belgium, which operates a gambling website at Circus.be, filed the claim.
The domain name is owned by Online Guru, Inc., the company that operates DMV.org.
Circus.com was registered in 1993.
As best I can tell from looking at historic screenshots, the site has always had content related to what you’d think — animals and entertainment circuses.
I’ve reached out to Online Guru’s owner to try to get more information on the filing. On the surface, this looks like a case of reverse domain name hijacking.
