Maybe they can come at you with a fat checkbook instead of a hammer next time.

Just proves it is pointless trying to piss on a duck's back.

You should read the full thing. Some parts are quite amusing.

Congrats Dave!

Do you think with a different panelist the outcome would be different?

Re: Duck v Carnival PLC - Expert Decision is in!

No, I think he has been conservative in his ruling to avoid the risk of an appeal. Give the bastards and inch and they will take a mile, which is why I pushed through with the judgment at my own cost.

Congratulations Dave. They won't be bothering you again. Did you consider requesting a reverse domain hijacking claim against them in the proceedings?

It was there but I think the Expert would have decided that it might undermine the integrity of the ruling and open up the possibility of appeal.

What I would advise is to buy up some dot Co dot UK quickly before this does the rounds and they will undoubtedly go up in price as this clear affirms the integrity of the Nominet DRS process. That in itself makes .co.uk a good investment.

I have just figured out why Rick gets good prices for his domains.

The bastards know they cannot roll him over!

A system, like we have, that encourages reverse domain name hijacking results in unintended consequences.

I guess we are talking hypothetically here. Hard to envisage anyone wanting to pay 5.

Re: Duck v Carnival PLC - Expert Decision is in!

Congrats on the outcome Dave.

We've also just gone through the process of taking someone to court for trademark infringement with a series of domain names ( Ascii in our case ) that they registered. The time and money spent doing this is not a small amount, but its something we had to go through.

Glad you saw it all the way through and got the deserved outcome.

Alex

Re: Duck v Carnival PLC - Expert Decision is in!

You regged the domain before they had a TM. As in most cases where that happens, case closed - congrats And personally, i've never heard of their cruise liner, the phreaking pub in Eastenders is more famous by far!
