Lost In UDRP

The domain name has been lost  in a UDRP in a case filed with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO)

We first wrote about this case when it was filed in November, noting at the time the domain name wasn’t a parked page but an informational site about the exam.

The complainant is the  American Council on Education GED Testing Service LLC whose official site is and who develops and delivers the GED test.

According to the domain was first registered in 1997 by Hayes Online Educational Services.

However the current owner seems to have owned the domain only since late 2012 (was under privacy from June 2011- November 2012).

The actual decision is not out yet but we will update the story once is it.

    More and more confused what goes on in udrp.
    Every time I think I understand and the definition of ‘generic’ and ‘bad faith’ it winds up completely opposite.

    Is there a TM on ged im not aware of and the site was taking away business from the holder? Was it confusingly similar perhaps? Lord knows I am.
