    Paint company files abusive cybersquatting complaint.

    An Israeli paint company has been found to have engaged in reverse domain name hijacking over the domain name Tambour.com. Tambour is a dictionary word in French that means ‘drum’.

    Tambour Ltd uses the domain name Tambour.co.il.

    The paint company reached out to the owner of the domain name and the registrant indicated he’d sell the domain name for $20,000. The valuation was based on the dictionary meaning of the word.

    According to the written decision by the three-member World Intellectual Property Organization panel, the Complainant also indicated in its inquiry to the registrant that it had previously owned the domain. The respondent challenges this assertion.
