A domain name can’t be renewed in bad faith under UDRP.

A chain of coffee shops has tried (and failed) to use the “renewed in bad faith” argument in a cybersquatting dispute.

Revelry Partners, LLC, which runs coffee and wine bars by the name Ascension Coffee, filed a UDRP against

Represented by Lisa Greenwald-Swire of Fish & Richardson, P.C., the coffee company made the argument that the domain owner renewed the domain name in bad faith last year.

Actually, she got a bit more creative than that. The National Arbitration Forum decision indicates that the argument was that the respondent reregistered the domain after allowing the domain registration to lapse.

The respondent didn’t reply to the assertions, so the panel reached out to GoDaddy to inquire what the circumstances were for the 2017 renewal. GoDaddy responded:
