PPA Media Services / Ryan G Foo lost three separate UDRP decisions with three separate complainants all handed down yesterday.
In the 1st case brought by Sirius XM Radio Inc., the domain at issue as the typo Sriusxm.com amazingly it took the trademark holder 7 years to being the UDRP:
“Complainant argues that Respondent registered the sriusxm.com domain name on July 29, 2008, one day after the merger of Sirius Satellite Radio Inc. and XM Satellite Radio Inc”
In the second case brought by fashion designer and manufacturer Vera Bradley, Inc. over the domain name virabradley.com which was registered in 2009:
In that case the UDRP panel noted:
Respondent is a recalcitrant, serial cybersquatter. NAF and WIPO UDRP decision databases reveal that Respondent has engaged in an ongoing pattern of bad faith registration of domain names.
Klein Tools, Inc. v. PPA Media Services / Ryan G Foo, FA 1497397 (Nat. Arb. Forum June 19, 2013);
ER Marks, Inc. and QVC, Inc. v. PPA Media Services / Ryan G Foo, FA 1496727 (Nat. Arb. Forum June 24, 2013);
AutoZone Parts, Inc. v. PPA Media Services / Ryan G Foo, FA 1497170 (Nat. Arb. Forum June 16, 2013).
Respondent’s multiple prior adverse UDRP decisions suggests bad faith registration and use in the instant proceeding under Policy ¶ 4(b)(ii). See Liberty Mut. Ins. Co. v. Bin g Glu, FA 1036129 (Nat. Arb. Forum Sept. 2, 2007) (holding prior UDRP proceedings were sufficient evidence of a pattern of bad faith registrations).”
Finally in the third case brought by Gamestop, Inc. on the domain names:
gamertop.com, registered on September 30, 2006;
gamestop0.com, registered on November 7, 2009;
gamestpop.com, registered on August 31, 2006;
gmamestop.com, registered on November 29, 2009.
The panel noted that they domain holder s a recalcitrant cybersquatter and provides evidence of prior UDRP decisions decided against Respondent.
Bath & Body Works Brand Mgmt., Inc. v. PPA Media Serv.s / Foo, FA 1510255 (Nat. Arb. Forum Aug. 27, 2013);
Under Armour, Inc. v. PPA Media Servs. / Foo, FA 1507330 (Nat. Arb. Forum Aug. 24, 2013);
Victoria’s Secret Stores Brand Mgmt., Inc. v. PPA Media Servs. / Foo, FA 1505712 (Nat. Arb. Forum July 30, 2013).
You might note that the three cases cited in the 3rd UDRP decision are different than the 3 cited by the 2nd UDRP panel
In all 57 UDRP cases have been brought against PPA Media Services / Ryan G Foo with the domain holder losing all but one.
In the 3rd case once again you have a huge delay by the trademark holder in bringing the UDRP from the date of registrations which was early as 7 years ago.
I’m going to suggest that the HallofShame.com is all fairness be updated to include such domain holders as well.
