Owner of WordPress Hit With UDRP On The Domain Name Thesis.com
#1
THURSDAY,23 April 2015 THE DOMAINS

According to the news from Domain Forum of China on April 23th,the owner of WordPress.com, Automattic, Inc, has been hit with a UDRP on the domain name Thesis.com which they seemed to have acquired in September 2014.

The domain name is registered through Mark Monitor.

The domain was owned by Facultylounge.com Partners until it was purchased by

The domain name Thesis.com is being forward to Themeshaper.com which is of course also owned by Automattic, Inc

A quick search of the USPTO found 7 live trademarks for Thesis, including one filed in February of 2015 by a THESIS COUTURE, INC, another filed in 2013 by Happy Green Company LLC and another filed in 2011 by E. Mishan & Sons, Inc.

Thesis is of course a dictionary word and appears in my opinion to be another attempt to grab a valuable domain from its lawful owner without compensation

Lets hope we see a Reverse Domain Name Hijacking decision on this one.
