    If you register a domain infringing on a famous mark, you’re a cybersquatter.

    Such cases give a bad name to the majority of domain investors who play by the rules, and when the domain involves the FIFAtrademark then you have a UDRP coming your way.

    The registrant of FIFA2022.com was served with a UDRP via the WIPO; the domain is making use of the famous FIFA mark, and the location of the next World Cup in Qatar.

    Despite the lack of a formal response, the Respondent agreed to transfer the domain, and sought 5890 euro as a reference to “basic cost” for it.
