    A keynote speaker and business coach filed a UDRP after failing to buy a domain name. It appears he got bad advice.

    Darryl Davis Seminars, Inc has been found to have engaged in reverse domain name hijacking over the domain name PowerAgent.con. A domain investor owns the domain name.

    A World Intellectual Property panel determined that Darryl Davis Seminars, Inc did not show that the domain was registered in bad faith. The three-member panel decided that it was a “Plan B” reverse domain name hijacking case in which Davis filed a cybersquatting complaint under UDRP after failing to buy the domain name for a price he wanted to pay.
