    A company called Licensing IP International S.à r.l. filed a URS complaint at the National Arbitration Forum against several new gTLD domain names. The complainant operates a number of popular adult websites, including PornHub, YouPorn, Tube8, RedTube, PornMD, and SexTube. The domain names subject to the URS filing include pornhub.plus, pornhubteen.top, pornmd.icu, pornohub.bid, redtube.bike, redtube.ink, redtube.vet, sextube.ink, tube8.blue, tube8.wtf, xxxyouporn.top, and youporn.guru.

    Had I simply looked at the domain names in advance of the decision, I would have guessed the complaint would be resolved in favor of the complainant. It looks like the keywords match some of the brand names that are operated by the complainant. Surprisingly to me, the URS panelist ruled against the complainant in this proceeding.
