Joe Pomp sues podcaster who he alleges is forwarding domains to his competing website.
Joe Pompliano, the publisher of a popular newsletter and podcast about sports business, has sued (pdf) a competing podcaster for cybersquatting.
Pompliano writes the popular Huddle Up newsletter and hosts a podcast called The Joe Pomp Show. He alleges that a competing podcaster registered joepompliano.com and joepomp.com and forwarded them to his website.
The domain names currently forward to TheGameplan.show, a podcast hosted by Jay Kapoor and Tim Katt. The lawsuit names Kapoor as a defendant. (I cannot confirm that Kapoor is the registrant for the domains because the domains have redacted Whois records.) The names were registered in January 2021.
Pompliano is asking for a preliminary and permanent injunction, damages, and the transfer of the domain names.
