Before you check out the two domains subject to the UDRP, I should mention that you better be over 18 and have a strong tolerance for some serious adult material that appears immediately as soon as the sites load.
The domain names are fully developed adult sites and which are not commonly the types of domains that get hit with a UDRP: parked pages, sites which use adsense, gripe sites, domains that do not resolve.com and domains that are for sale,
It would appear that Pinterest is basing its UDRP claim on the word Pin combined with another dictionary word and “sex” and “gay”.
Unfortunately unlike court cases, pleadings to UDRP cases are not public so we will have to wait until the decision comes out to see what the WIPO panel has to say, but for now it appears that Pinterest thinks its has rights to any site with pictures and/or videos that at least starts with the word “Pin”
We will let you know how this one turns out.
The case number is D2014-1067 and was filed on June 21.
