I thought I’d take a leaf out of Ned’s recent ‘snippets’ post and write my own update of things that I’ve heard happening in the domain name industry recently.
Domain Name Thieves out in force.
I’ve heard of many people getting complaints against their domains in recent months leading up to the April 12th policy change we just went through. One such complaint I’m currently dealing with is against the domain name Affirm.com.au that I represent as a broker. The domain name has been owned since 2006 and the “fresh” trademark holders have decided to file an auDRP out against this domain name. I’m going to be defending it for my client. I’ll be writing a full expose about this in the coming days.
Meanwhile, have any of your domain names had complaints made against them recently?

Have you had any sales you’d care to report?
