Interesting story: Phoenix New Times sues former employee for cybersquatting | Heat City
Interesting read, but some others on this forum will get much more out of it than I could.
I tend not to fully understand legal disbutes due to being either black or white but never both.
Seems that the domains were registered in bad faith though, but why would a company only register a domain a couple of years before it knows it will have need for it...are they really that cheap?
Yeah, that seemed strange.
This rang a bell with me because it has crossed my mind to register "Best of City Name" domains (though I wouldn't have done it for specific years, and I wouldn't have done it for cities where another company held a trademark on the term).
bestofphoenix2021.com is available for squatting.
This is why I always slam domains with years in them. You must own all of them far into the future. They should have bought iLovePhoenix.com or something and rolled with "iLovePhoneix.com - The Best of Phoenix 20xx." That would mean slightly changing the slogan each year rather than the entire domain.
Separate names with a comma.
