Weird that some guy from Korea has the domain now... Wonder what happened between the Admin decision and when the guy from Korea acquired the domain.....

You'll find lots of domains like that. What happens with large organizations is that the idiots in the upper floors were alerted to a "problem" by their attorney. The attorney did the UDRP, and never interfaced with the guy on the lower floor, in the back room, who is actually responsible for managing domains for the company. So, the renewal time came and went, and the domain name was never moved into the account where the person responsible for domains holds the names for the company.

Happens all of the time...

Sometimes big companies don't have a clue how things work. they win a decision to get the name away from someone, then think they can let it drop and it will stay unregistered and no one will find it.

Also, the confusion of acquiring a domain in a UDRP that may be in a differnet registrar or even a different language than their others can cause confusion. Not much differnet than using snapnames and winning domains from many differnet registrars in different languages. Or even accepting the transfer and not checking to make sure the whois was changes so they get the renewal notices...

Bingo, AD. Dealing with any of that crap is well outside of the competence of the attorneys whom complainants regularly engage to deal with domain disputes.

Half of the time, they don't even change the nameservers, even if they pay the renewals, so they end up paying the reg fees for someone else to monetize the domains...

So I am fairly new to this and own is it legal to sell?..

Comment #5

Im always too afraid to even get something close to a tm name.

I guess they big haunchos in these companies need some education and to keep better track of their stuff so they dont have to pay attorney fees later down the line yanking it from someone..

Comment #6
