Back in November we told you that Nat Cohen’s Telepathy filed a Federal Lawsuit over the domain name SDT.com which he owned after a UDRP was filed.
Nat has informed us that the case has now been settled and SDT paid $50,000 to settle it.
After a UDRP was filed on SDT.com, Telepathy filed a federal lawsuit in federal court requesting statutory damages for Reverse Domain Name Hijacking, a statement that its ownership of SDT.com was lawful, and attorney’s fees.
SDT was advised by represented by Novagraaf.
Novagraaf had previously been censured twice by UDRP panels for bringing frivolous complaints.
SDT filed the UDRP complaint after failed purchase negotiations, and after it represented that it had no legal rights to the SDT.com domain name.
Telepathy was represented by David Weslow of Wiley Rein.
This is excellent news for all domain owners especially those with generic domains that get hit with frivolous UDRP’s and spending money to defend them
