Musical instrument marketing company wants to get a shorter domain name.
A regional musical instrument marketing company has turned to the courts after losing a UDRP for the domain name ReflexMarketing.com
Reflex Marketing, LLC operates in the New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania areas. It uses the domain name ReflexMarketingLLC.com.
Earlier this year, it lost a UDRP against the domain name. The panel found that Reflex Marketing did not show that the domain was registered and used in bad faith.
The registrant, who lives in China, acquired the domain name in the drop last year after a marketing agency let it expire.
Now Reflex Marketing has filed an in rem lawsuit (pdf) against the domain name in U.S. District Court in Virginia, where .com registry Verisign is located. It alleges that the registrant violated the U.S. Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act.
The lawsuit mentions registrant data verification by World Intellectual Property Organization but doesn’t mention that it lost a UDRP for the name.
As an in rem case, the judge is likely to enter a default judgment unless the domain owner shows up to defend the domain in court.
