Canyon Bicycles GmbH has filed what appears to be the first UDRP on a new gTLD domain name Canyon.bike
The domain name was registered on February 5th under privacy at Godaddy.com
Although this marks the first new gTLD domain name hit with a UDRP, IBM filed either a UDRP or a URS a few days ago on the domain names IBM.Guru and IBM.Ventures
It appears that as we have chatted about while trademark holders are not playing the sunrise registration game or the domain blocking game in a big way they are on the look out for registrations and will be reactive rather than proactive.
While this is the 3rd new gTLD domain name to be hit with a dispute, it marks only the second party to bring an dispute.
I’m sure more are on their way.
