UDRP Filed On Generic kinder-chocolate.com By Owner Of kinderchocolate.com Which Doesn’t Resolve

A UDRP has just been filed by Ferrero S.p.A. on the Generic domain name kinder-chocolate.com

If you don’t know “kinder” is German for “children”.

Here is the interesting part, the same company owns the domain name kinderchocolate.com which they just registered in August 2012.

The domain name kinder-chocolate.com was registered back in 2009.

The domain kinderchocolate.com which is owned by the company that just filed the UDRP doesn’t even resolve.

It takes a lot of nerve to file a UDRP on a variation of a generic domain, registered before your domain was registered especially when your own domain doesn’t even resolve.

    I can see KinderChocolate.com was registered recently because it’s a drop domain and was previously owned by someone else as long as 2008. Just checked through Archive.org

    Hyphens are really popular when it comes to domain names, so I can see why they’re going after this one. I would do a UDRP on The-Domains.com if I were you, Michael.

    I think that the problem here is the mixing of the 2 languages.
    KinderSchokolade.com is generic.
    ChildrenChocolate.com is generic.
    It might seem odd or even suspicious to the Panel why someone would register Kinder-Chocolate.com.
