A new WIPO’s decision recognizing Reverse Domain Name Hijacking

In a decision of May 17, 2022 (Case No. D20220451, GL Concepts, LLC d/b/a Goodlife vs.Perfect Privacy, LLC), the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) recognized Reverse Domain Name Hijacking (RDNH).
To succeed in a Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution (UDRP) procedure, not only are a registered trademark and a legitimate interest necessary, it must be evidenced that the domain name has been registered and is being used in bad faith.
Filing a UDRP complaint in an attempt to deprive a domain name holder of a domain name qualifies as bad faith. Such complaint is denied.
