Rick Schwartz’s company Virtual Dates, Inc has filed a second UDRP based on his “Domain King” federally registered trademark, this time on the domain name DomainKing.biz.
.Ng is the country code (ccTLD) for Nigeria.
At that time Rick told TheDomains.com that the UDRP on the domain DomainKing.ng was “the first of several actions that will be coming against those who are profiting from the goodwill off the trademark of “Domain King” which Rick’s is widely known by in the domain name industry.”
Rick said at the time “I will be going after any site which is profiting off my good name and my protected trademark.”
Rick not only is commonly known as the Domain King inside the domain community, but his company has a federally registered trademark on the term “Domain King” in the United States since 2003 (which was renewed in 2012) as well as a European trademark.
Like DomainKing.ng which is a domain name registrar, DomainKing.biz is basically the same site and is owned by the same company “Hannu Internet Corp.” which according to the site is “A Global Web Services Company founded in 2008.”
Also according to DomainKing.biz, Hannu Internet manages over 10,000 domains for clients around the world”.
The company is located in Jalandhar India.
