DomainKing.biz UDRP loss can help domainers on the receiving end of a UDRP.

Earlier this month domain investor Rick Schwartz lost a UDRP–as the complainant.

Schwartz filed a UDRP against a domain name registrar over the domain DomainKing.biz. Schwartz has a trademark for Domain King in the U.S. and Europe.

The domain registrar mostly operates in South Africa and the Philippines, offering domain names such as .co.za and .ph.

I wasn’t sure which way this case would go when it was filed.

The panelist determined that the domain wasn’t registered in bad faith. He said that the respondent likely was generally aware of Rick Schwartz because he would have visited DomainKing.com before registering the .biz version, but probably wasn’t aware that it was being used in a trademark sense.
