Generic DietCenters.com Hit With UDRP
The generic domain name DietCenters.com just got hit with a UDRP filing.
The domain name with an original registration date of 1997.
The domain goes to a directory of called the Diet Centers Directory Directory, which has links to some site and some PPC type of links but is not a traditional parked page.
The complainant is a company named Diet Center Worldwide, Inc. which seems to hold, in addition to others several trademarks on the term “Diet Center” but which does not appear to have a trademark on the plural.
The earliest trademark that the complainant holds in the US goes back to 1987.
It will be interesting to see how the UDRP panel deals with the 15 year delay in bringing the action from the date the domain was registered
