I had always thought that you had to be seen to be doing something with the domain
to prove 'legitimate interest' in the domain. This case found that the defendent
was not violating another prerequisite -registering in bad faith, as he had not done
anything with it.|
I suspect this case is something of a one-off. I won't be following
this example with any of my domains. I think it's too risky.
I believe the the
best advice to avoid these disputes (apart form not registering the name - which
you have a right to anyway) is to put a up something - maybe just a few pages just
to suggest legitimate interest in the name and don't contact any large corps who
may be interested in it, or lay claim to it, as they probably meet the first prerequisite
and this could be construed as bad faith.
