ميزان.com Arabic/persian
 
Someone mailed me interest in the domain name asking me price. I have no clue how much it's worth.

XN--MGBV0DGR.COM

Meaning:

1) Arabic: balance, scale, Libra

2) Farsi: a pair of scales , a balance , Mizan, name of the seventh month of the solar year now replaced by Mehr ( ) , a measure , balance , equilibrium , number , quantity , degree , focus , rate , adjusting , (astr , ) Libra

There is a bank in Iran called mizanbank.ir

Did you register it because you thought "scales" has great resell value or because it is a bank's name?

Be careful, they might not be interested in buying it.

As IDN said, sometimes it's best to stick with non equivocal generics - or names worth fighting for. Remember if you lose a UDRP, you will most certainly be labeled as a serial cybersquatter in any next UDRP/URS, wether justified or not.

In Egypt the symbol of the scales goes back way beyond the existence of the Arabic Language. Something to do with weighing of Sins against a Feather before entry into the after life.

Of course, all the IP Rights will now below to some American Corporation.

The NSA can also almost certainly prove that your registration was terrorist related due to the fact it contains weird swiggles.

i think you need to lose 3 UDRP in x years to be labeled as a cybersquatter.

I think you are referring to qualification rules in the new gTLD program.

Im referring to the general tactic of labeling the respondent as a serial cybersquatter to further make one's case

Thank you for the feedbacks.

- i registered for the generic name "scale" and also for Libra in arabic. I had no clue of what's happening in farsi or brands there.

- I already mentioned to the interested person that I'm doing that as experiment to develop the site and not as squatter.

I wouldn't even bother mentioning the Farsi meaning with this name in the future because it wouldn't work with Farsi keyboards. It is purely Arabic.

It looks like there's a couple people using the name for the ascii website. Probably one of those parties.
