Cybersquatting cases under the UDRP are up:
According to Domain Incite author Kevin Murphy, children toy manufacturer Lego recently passed Microsoft in filed complaints against cybersquatters, reporting that Lego has filed 236 cases under the UDRP since 2006, one more than Microsoft. “The 236 cases equates to over $350,000 in WIPO fees alone,” Murphy estimates. “I’d be surprised if Lego has spent less than $1 million on UDRP cases over the last few years,” he explains. Murphy also reports that America Online (AOL) has both companies beat with approximately 277 filed UDRP cases in the last decade.
So how aggressive should you be in pursing cybersquatting cases against cybersquatters under the UDRP?
