What is Reverse Domain Name Hijacking?
Reverse Domain Name Hijacking is when a person or entity tries to steal a domain name from the rightful and legal owner by claiming Trademark Infringement and/or Bad Faith among other fabrications in order to get a governing panel to award them the domain name.
In lay terms, they are folks too cheap to pay the owner and so they abuse the process and try to steal or hijack the domain name that they have no rights to whatsoever. Panels may find that they are guilty of this practice and not only deny their claim but find that the over reach is indeed Reverse Domain Name Hijacking. (RDNH). At Domainer and DomainThieves.com.au we expose these people, companies and the attorneys that represent them and sometimes aid and abet!
