Rediff.com India Ltd., which owns trademarks such as REDRIFFMAIL and REDRIFF etc, won the typo domain Rediffmai.com in a recent WIPO case.

Rediff is not a dictionary word. The disputed domain was parked and had pay-per-click ads related to many of Rediff's services. Obviously, Rediff deserved to win this domain. You can read the full WIPO decision here.

The respondent has a history of registering other domains, based on the names of other well-known companies:

These include <bznkofamerica.com>, <goofgle.com>, <google4.com>, <facewbook.com>, <craigslisst.org>, <freiendster.com>, <amnestyinternational.org>, <photobucket.org>, <lycos.org>, <lycosasia.com>, <moorgate.com>, and <cottonell.com>.
These domains are blatant trademark infringements. Eliminating cyberquatters will greatly improve the image of 'domainers.'
