Company tries a third UDRP venue to no avail.
If at first you are found to try reverse domain name hijacking, try, try again.
The entrepreneur who operates a 3D modeling company at spase.io has failed for a third time to upgrade his domain to spase.com through UDRP.
Mrs Jello LLC registered the domain name in 2005 while the Complainant Spase, Inc didn’t start using the Spase mark until 2019. So there’s no way Mrs Jello LLC registered the domain in 2005 to target Spase, Inc.
Spase, Inc. filed its first case last year with World Intellectual Property Organization and the panel found that it was reverse domain name hijacking.
It tried refiling the case with National Arbitration Forum last year and was found guilty of reverse domain name hijacking again.
This time, Spase, Inc turned to Arab Centre for Dispute Resolution. It lost again (pdf). Mrs Jello didn’t respond and the panel didn’t consider reverse domain name hijacking.
After filing the third case, Spase, Inc. founder Sahil Gupta posted a video ranting about his failures to secure the domain name through UDRP. Showing his lack of understanding about cybersquatting, he suggested that NASA should file a UDRP against Space.com because the site publishes stories about NASA and runs ads on its site.
The real sore loser with the guy that lost the election.
Now he wants to change the rules…sound similar..
Someone….please contact him and ask him why he wants the dot com and why he deserves it..
So what his next move??
Sahil Gupta (formerly of Tesla and a Yale University alum), is obviously a complete jerk, thinking he can just steal other people’s property. Trying to steal it, not once, twice but now thrice, failing all three times. His parents and anyone who knows him should be embarrassed by his actions. Mrs Jello, LLC has owned this domain since 2005 or 2007 from what I can tell. According to Sahail’s profile on linkedin (/in/sahil5d/) he only founded Spase, Inc. as of February 2019. What an idiot for starting a business and naming it with an .io thinking he can just steal the .com later when he wants to use it. This lowlife has no couth and deserves the infamous titles he has been labeled on the Internet. Especially after he keeps trying to steal something he has no rights to and clearly lost twice on already. His video proves what a moron he really is. How in the world did he even get into Yale??
In his video he says “the most dishonest people I have ever met.” What a complete moron. If I were Mrs Jello I would sue this guy to oblivion for what he has published in this video.

You can understand why this guy is an expert in “augmented reality”.
He doesn’t do very well with this one.
As I just mentioned at OnlineDomain,com:
I had never even heard of the ACDR until now. If they had ruled in his favor, when then? The ACDR is empowered to take .com domain names from people?
his lawyers seems making money 🙂
Andrew Allemann says
Well, that’s part of the problem. He’s doing it himself without a lawyer to tell him he’s going to lose.
