Domainers are going to love and hate the UDRP decision via @sharethis

Complaint fails, by why did only one panelist find Quality Logo Products guilty of reverse domain name hijacking? Get On The Web, Ltd has successfully defended the domain name QLP.com in a UDRP brought by Quality Logo Products, Inc. While the overall decision in the case was good, domain investors are still going to be upset about some of the details. The obvious fact here is that QLP.com is a generic domain.

    The UDRP case for the domain name <a href="http://www.qlp.com">QLP.com</a> has been decided. Aurora-based Quality Logo Products Inc. represented by Chicago-based Law Firm Golan & Christie loses the case.

    One panelist stated that it was a "groundless complaint" and that "We owe it to this Respondent to chastise the Complainant and its representative for their irresponsible conduct. We owe it to the integrity of the UDRP process to call out patent abuses such as I believe this case to be."

    The WIPO ruling on the case (Quality Logo Products Inc v Get on the Web Ltd) can be found at <a href="http://www.wipo.int/amc/en/domains/search/text.jsp?case=D2013-1691">WIPO Case No.: D2013-1691</a>
