A World Intellectual Property Organization panel has found that OBO Bettermann Holding GmbH & Co. KG tried to reverse domain name hijack the domain name obo.com.
The company, which operates websites at obo-bettermann.com and obo.de, filed the dispute against Darren Dittrich. Dittrich registered the domain name over 20 years ago because it’s short for “or best offer.” He forwarded it to his classifieds site sell.com, which he operated until the beginning of 2021.
On this basis alone, there was no chance for OBO Bettermann to win the case. It is clear that the registrant had rights or legitimate interests and didn’t register the domain in bad faith to target the Complainant.
