What’s the definition of insanity, again?
A National Arbitration Forum panelist has found that Spase, Inc., committed reverse domain name hijacking for a second time.
The company uses Spase.io for its service that turns product photos into 3D digital files.
It filed a UDRP against Spase.com with World Intellectual Property Organization earlier this year.
The three-member panel found that it was a case of reverse domain name hijacking; the domain owner Mrs Jello, LLC acquired the domain well before Spase, Inc. existed.
Spase founder Sahil Gupta went on a twitter tirade after the decision.
Apparently still not understanding what’s required to win a cybersquatting case under UDRP, Gupta filed another UDRP against the domain at National Arbitration Forum.
Mrs Jello, LLC didn’t respond to the dispute but panelist Dawn Osborne found reverse domain name hijacking:
As a result of the WIPO Case the Complainant must have been aware that the Domain Name could not have been registered in bad faith as the Complainant lacked the relevant rights in the SPASE name at the time of registration of the Domain Name. As such the Panel has no alternative but to hold that this Complaint is a case of Reverse Domain Name Hijacking.
