The extremely generic domain name Fiesta.com has been hit with a UDRP filing.
The complainant is Dean & Simmons, Sàrl Heintz Van Landewyck S.à.r.l. which as the best as I can tell has a pending but not yet registered trademark on the term and is actually facing abandonment by April 2015.
Del Monte foods also has a recently filed trademark on the term Fiesta going all the way back to May 14th 2014.
As for the domain name it’s registered under privacy at Moniker but was owned prior to that by DomainCapital.com
The domain seems to have been parked forever and is currently at InternetTraffic.com
Interestedly the for sales link on the top of the page says the “domain may be available for sale by the Sync Foundation”
Not sure what the Sync Foundation is but the domain has an original registration date of May 15, 1995 slightly before the pending “trademark” application of the world famous, Dean & Simmons, Sàrl Heintz Van Landewyck S.à.r.l. which appears to be a holding company out of Luxembourg that is in the tobacco business.
What relationship the word, Fiesta has to the cancer causing tobacco is anyone guess.
My mother died from lung cancer after being a lifetime smoker so for those in the tobacco industry especially those trying to steal a 20 year old domain based off a TM filed but not even granted, your are not amongst my favorite people in the world.
