    ...and here are another two domains that have been added to the pending list:

    MicrosoftStore.in - Microsoft is no stranger to INDRP cases. They will win this case for sure! FYI, Microsoft is currently using the .co.in.

    KangarooKids.in - I'm not sure who the complainant is likely to be. Perhaps it relates to the Kangaroo Kids pre-schools in India?

    UPDATE - Here are the decisions to date:

    Seems that Pantaloons lost the dispute for .com :

    http://www.wipo.int/amc/en/domains/decisions/html/2010/d2010-0587.html

    Can the original owner appeal on the basis of this decision.

    Well spotted Ace! The UDRP decision makes a lot more sense than the INDRP decision - too bad they differ so much.

    I would think that the time to appeal the INDRP decision has long expired.

    Now that's the only fair Pantaloon-related decision that I've read!

    Pending INDRP dispute:

    GingerHotels.co.in
    - I think that's the name of a hotel brand in India owned by the Tata Group.

    Pending dispute: Rps-savana.co.in

    To date, we haven't seen that many hyphenated domains on the list. The complainant is probably the RPS Group, which owns Rps-savana.com

    I have just read several of the decisions made in regard to .in domain names and it is blatantly clear to me that anyone who owns more than 1 .in domain has absolutely no security of ownership whatsoever even if the domain is generic word like "internet" or "jobs" etc etc etc.
    I have seen same with other "third world" cc tld's where they simply take the domain name from the Registrant with no complaint process whatsoever (i.e. if someone wants it they get the regulator to take it and give them it).

    I would not invest much in .in domains given the likelihood that someone will simply take them from you.

    Rather than not investing in .IN domains, I would suggest -

    1. Don't use (any kind of) parking and host a blog or forum as soon as you register a domain. You can get unlimited hosting anywhere from $10 to $25 per month, which is not a big deal if you are a domain investor. Actually, I would suggest reseller hosting (about $25 per month) so you can have separate account for each domain (like a separate business).

    2. If sale notice is put on the site, don't use "domain for sale", instead use "website for sale" or "business for sale".

    3. Whatever you do, try to be on the "good faith" side.

    I think this would apply to most other TLDs/ccTLDs too.

    Remember, parked pages are being de-listed by major search engines and modern browsers don't promote type-in traffic. A developed site has more resale value, better recall value and has pages indexed on search engines.

    Cheers!

    I took a look at the current list of pending dispute decisions. It seems like most of them are TM domains - eg Remy-Martin.in, Sensient.in, IvoclarVivadent.in and MetLifeBank.co.in (all were registered in 2010).

    Also, the recently decided cases look just as bad: CrownePlaza.in, MorganStanleyBank.co.in, StandardAndPoors.co.in and DisneyStore.in.

    :( It is disappointing to see this. It is one of the main reasons why domainers have a negative image. As mentioned before, cybersquatters need to be eliminated...

    MSD.co.in is being disputed. What do you think - Merck Sharp & Dohme? Currently, the domain is parked and I can't see any history info on archive.org.

    MSD.in belongs to Merck and redirects to MSDIndia.in, so probably yes.

    But I really don't think anyone should have special rights to LLL domains in general. As far as I know, most WIPO decisions for LLL.coms go against complainants.

    I agree. However, the exception to this general rule are famous TMs. If there's any doubt about whether a domain might be risky to own, I think it would be wise not to park it.

    Unresolved Domains or even Parked pages on a Domain Names always go against the Domain Owners, when it comes to Domain Dispute Policy. It is legally always advisable to have a working website to prove the good faith in the registered Domain name !

    What about the fact that it takes time to plan and develop a website?
