    A UDRP was filed against Spase.com at the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). The domain name is registered to Mrs Jello, LLC, the company founded by the late Igal Lichtman, which is now operated by his wife, Michal Lichtman. Attorney Stevan Lieberman shared the decision with me, which went in favor of the domain registrant. The panel also found the complaint was brought in bad faith (Reverse Domain Name Hijacking – RDNH).

    The factual background section in the decision pretty much tells us why this UDRP was flawed from the beginning and resulted in a finding of RDNH:

    “The Complainant owns and operates a business converting photographs into 3D models. The Complainant’s business was incorporated as Spase, Inc. in February 2019, and trades under the name “Spase.” The Complainant submits he has established common law trademark rights in SPASE, citing media presence, twitter and podcast interviews, and the Internet presence of the Complainant’s website at “www.spase.io”. The Complainant commenced this proceeding following an unsuccessful effort to acquire the disputed domain name from the Respondent. “​

    Not only was the company founded 14 years after Mrs Jello, LLC acquired the domain name in 2005, but it also shows that this was a Plan B attempt at taking the domain name. An acquisition effort failed, so instead of buying the domain name, perhaps a less expensive UDRP would be successful. Wrong. This does not work.

    On the other hand, the complainant took to Twitter to rant about the loss of UDRP and how he or his startup named spase.io has the right to spase.com domain name, and Mrs Jello, LLC is a domain squatter. Read the full series of Tweets and domainer community backlash here.

    Domain King aka Rick Schwartz went to the extreme of making a statement against the complainant on Twitter. Read his statement here.

    He should've just paid $15k and would've saved himself from the humiliation and the loss.

    No, Plan B was "A few months later we reach out again, this time from an intern who happens to live near the domain registration address". :xf.grin: Plan C was sending a kosher cake, and UDRP was apparently Plan D.

    I thought Mrs Jello passed a way a while ago?
    I had some good transactions with him.

    I think you guys, (the Dexperts ) should provide some free lessons on twitter or maybe tell Sahil to join NP. Then he will learn by himself.

    I am sure Spase.io customers believe they own Spase.com. Maybe, Mrs.Jello should point Spase.com to a porno site. Just to stick it good to Spase.io.

    The court should crack down hard on those who don't want to spend a penny,
    And then the person who wants to get their own domain name directly in this way

    UDRPv2: Each side puts their "confusingly similar" domain on the scales and the winner gets both. :xf.grin:
