People don’t respond to UDRP filings for a couple of reasons.
One is that they aren’t aware of the case against their domain. Perhaps they don’t check their email frequently, the information went to spam, they are traveling, they are incapacitated, etc. Or maybe they received the communication but didn’t understand it, so they didn’t bother to respond.
The other is that they are a bad actor and decide not to reply.
Either way, panelists often acquiesce to whatever the Complainant argues when the domain owner doesn’t respond.
So kudos to World Intellectual Property Organization panelist Jeremy Speres for his decision (UDRP) in a case over terravita .shop.
