Google files complaint over hundreds of domains with “Google” in the name


Google Inc. has filed one complaint (Case No. 1434643) with the National Arbitration Forum that encompasses well over 700 domains with the word “Google” in the name like and

Google filed the Uniform Domain Name Resolution Policy (UDRP) complaint this week against one person: Chris Gillespie.

According to UDRP rules, if more than one domain name held by the same Respondent is in dispute, all may be included in one complaint. Rule 3(b)(vi).

In order for the National Arbitration Forum panel reviewing the case to issue a decision in Google’s favor, the panel will determine if the disputed domains meet the following three elements required under the ICANN policy, which are:

(1) the domain name is identical or confusingly similar to a trademark in which the complainant has rights
(2) the owner has no rights or legitimate interests in respect of the domain name and;
(3) the domain name has been registered and is being used in bad faith. 

The Google domains being disputed are all over the board and many use Go Daddy’s CashParking, a service that lets domain owners earn money on parked domains.

Here’s a sample of the names:,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
