    Liberty Steel owner investigated over domain registrations that closely resemble its competitors.

    Web addresses linked to rival firms were registered with an email address from Liberty House, the commodities trading and industrial firm that is part of Mr Gupta’s empire.

    The scandal surrounding Sanjeev Gupta’s metals empire has taken a new turn after commodities trading houses have launched an investigation into web domains closely resembling their own, seemingly registered to an employee of Mr Gupta’s firm.

    The Financial Times reported that the web addresses were registered with an email address from Liberty House, the commodities trading and industrial firm that is part of Mr Gupta’s GFG Alliance conglomerate.

    Websites registered to the email account include gunvorsg.com, a name that seems to closely match Gunvor, one of the largest oil traders in the world.

    Another address identified by the Financial Times, concordresources.net, matches London metals trader Concord Resources. Mark Hansen, chief executive of Concord Resources, said that the firm would send a cease-and-desist letter to Liberty House over the registration.

    It takes a few seconds and a few bucks to register a domain. But if you register trademarks then the fallout can be huge. Especially if you register trademarks owned by your competitors then that has to be the zenith of asininity. Maybe someone was RWI. Registering while intoxicated.
