The domain name WorldTradeCenter.com, was lost in a UDRP along with WorldTradeCenter.net.

The one member panel decision was handed down by the On-line ADR Center of the Czech Arbitration Court (CAC).

The complainant is the World Trade Centers Association, Inc, who was represented by RODENBAUGH LAW.

The domain WorldTradeCenter.com was registered on November 2, 1996 and owned is Earth Plaza of Ft. Lauderdale, Florida who has owned the domain name since at least 2002 according to DomainTools.com but may have been the original registrant.

In 2011 the domain was listed for sale by Aftermarket.com as we reported.

The Complainant is the holder of trademark registrations consisting of the sign WORLD TRADE CENTER in multiple countries, including U.S. trademark registration no. 1469489 for the word mark “WORLD TRADE CENTER”, registered with the USPTO on December 15, 1987, in class 42 (hereinafter, the “WORLD TRADE CENTER trademarks”.

The Complainant is a not-for-profit corporation, incorporated in the State of Delaware on August 22, 1969. It aims at the stimulation of trade and investment opportunities for commercial property developers, economic development agencies, and international businesses looking to connect globally and prosper locally.

The disputed domain name was registered on May 12, 1998.

The disputed domain names currently do not resolve to an active webpage but according to screenshots.com had an active page (or parked page) since June 2014.

For an undefined period of time, the first disputed domain name worldtradecenter.com was used to link to a memorial page for the 9/11 attacks in 2001.

It is uncontested that the disputed domain name has also been used as a parking page containing pay-per-click advertisements and that the second disputed domain nameredirected immediately to the first disputed domain name.

The one member panel concluded:

That is not a good news for domain name investors!!! A name which has a record of being registered 20 years back and getting lost in UDRP now, is definitely a bad sign. Such news have escalated in recent times.

What do you think about this whole case?
