HugeDomains gets reverse domain name hijacking win against Virgin Enterprises

Virgin takes the low road and is nailed for reverse domain name hijacking.

HugeDomains has successfully defended its domain name VirginLiving.com against an attack by Virgin Enterprises, and Virgin has been found guilty of reverse domain name hijacking in the case.

Virgin failed to prove any of the three elements required to win a cybersquatting case under UDRP.

HugeDomains.com successfully argued that Virgin doesn’t have complete control over every word attached to Virgin. HugeDomains owns 750 domain names that begin with the word “virgin” and over 1,600 domain names that end with the word “living”, all of them being combinations of two dictionary terms.

Virgin Enterprises recently filed an intent-to-use trademark application for Virgin Living and then discovered that HugeDomains owns the domain name and has it listed for sale for $4,795.
