    That was before WIPO consistently included representative information in UDRP cases. That was one of my earliest cases and the first case in which I received an RDNH finding from a panel.

    If you do, give me a holler. Sometimes there are some stories behind them that the decision doesn’t include.

    Deutsche Welle did not really need this domain name.
    Their service is "Germany's state radio/TV for free". You don't need a fancy name/brand for it. There is no competition.

    But they have a lot of money (from taxpayers) that they need to spend.
