Narnia.mobi taken from Scottish family Comment WordPress (4) Facebook () Google+ 4 Responses Chris M Good old lawyers and some classic saber rattling. If there was no evidence of money being made via this domain purchase in relation to the trademark I see no reason why the WIPO has awarded CS Lewis estate the domain. A very lazy, badly run case in my opinion. VA:F [1.9.22_1171]please wait...Rating: 0.0/5 (0 votes cast) July 24, 2008 at 12:47 pm Nicholas Dudley-Jones Very Interesting!! I just sold my hpmini.com site to HP!!! They contacted me wanting to know my intentions with the site and that they were getting a number of comments/confusion as to wether my site was affiliate with theirs? They threatened legal action but said it would be easier/cheaper for all concerned if i sold the domain/site to them just so they could get rid of it!! I definately learnt my lesson and will be extremely careful in choosing my domain name and those brands that are associated with them!

I would hardly have thought that they owned the word ‘bounce’. If you look in the archives of disputes in Nominet you see several strange decisions. A tip: use your own name not your company to register a .co.uk name. You will find it a lot easier to transfer it. Especially do not use a Ltd company to register a .co.uk name. If that folds the name goes up for grabs, unless you can prove you have used it for a year. You do not automatically get the name even if you were the sole director of the company. The people in Nominet are allowed to register names too of course. I remember one of them won in a dispute over some name to do with netservers.

If you read the decision in its entirety you’ll notice that CS Lewis’ estate wasn’t the only one that these people were interested in. The claims about their child make for good media coverage, but hide their true intentions Michele VA:F [1.9.22_1171]please wait...Rating: 0.0/5 (0 votes cast) September 5, 2008 at 1:30 am Click here to cancel reply.
