An interesting legal decision regarding the domain name pocketbook.com was handed down by a United States district judge this month. The case arose out of this NAF UDRP decision from 2019 that decided for the domain name owner: https://www.adrforum.com/DomainDecisions/1857174.htm
The court reviewed the Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act (ACPA) prohibits reverse
domain name hijacking, which occurs when “overreaching trademark owners” interfere with a
domain name registrant’s lawful use of a domain name.
The court decided that the requirement that the domain name “has been suspended, disabled, or transferred” does not include temporary suspension during the pendency of a UDRP case.
