This is a weird one for sure.
A UDRP has been filed against the domain name Hopscotch.com
The Complainant is listed as the Hopscotch Group, which is a french PR company whose website is on the domain name hopscotchgroupe.com
The company also owns the domain Hopscotch.fr, but that domain isn’t even being forwarded to the company main website at hopscotchgroupe.com
As you can see the word “groupe” in the company’s URL is spelled the “french way” with an “e” at the end.
However according to WIPO the UDRP was filed by Hopscotch Group
The company does not own the domain HopScotchGroup.com, that domain is owned by Buydomains.com and is for sale and IMHO would be pretty surprised if it wasn’t priced in the low to mid four figures.
As of publication the Domain name TheHopScotchGroup.com is available for registration for $10 or so.
I check the USPTO and found 10 live trademarks for Hopscotch.com but none seemed to be owned by the Complainant.
As for HopScotch.com the domain is owned under privacy and going to a placeholder at Networksoultions.com.
The last time the domain was not under privacy it was owned by a Joseph William Lee who seems to have owned the domain for many years.
The domain seems to have been parked, going to the placeholder except for a short period of time, since 2004 according to Screenshots.com
As for those UDRP panels that believe, incorrectly, that renewing a domain is equivalent to a new registration, this domain was registered out to 2020 in 2010.
We will keep our eye on this one.
