Two UDRP’s were just filed against two very good domain names.
Moroccanoil Israel Ltd. Verb Hair Products Canada Inc./Verb Products Inc. filed the UDRP against Verb.com
Verb.com has been owned since at lease 2002 by a Richard Bloxham.
According to Screenshots.com the domain name Verb.com has been parked since at least August 2005.
The parked page that I see currently and the one’s viewable on Screenshots appear to only contain links to language and nothing about hair products.
Looks like an attempted Reverse Domain Name Hijacking to me.
Another UDRP filed today is against the three letter domain name QIQ.com by QIQ Communications Pty Ltd< QIQ.com was pretty recently transferred. The previous owner was Alexa Properties, LLC of Las Vegas but the domain appears to have transferred early this year to a NETICO, INC, of STEVENSON RANCH, CA. The domain is currently being re-directed to advertisers through some sort of monetization program. I'm winding up at Coupons.com and Local.com but as you know those type of programs may send a visitor to any type of site so we will have to see how this one turns out. Finally a domain name owned by Alexander Lerman, AmericanForce.com has had a UDRP filed against it by American Force, Inc. Alexander has owned the domain since at least 2011 but probably for many years before when the domain was held under privacy. The domain name is currently parked and returns results all related to the military. I found a trademark for American Force in the USPTO but the owner of the trademark appears to be a different company, AMERICAN FORCE WHEELS, INC of Miami We will keep our eye on all three of these
