    Jurisdiction.... yes, I have taken advice on that.
    Someone cannot impose jurisdiction on possible future court cases on the other side. However, with regard to suing AOL for RDNH, you are quite correct. They chose mutual jurisdiction of Maryland, as BulkRegister are based there (conveniently close to Washington and Virginia.) However, we are not suing AOL for RDNH nor are we suing them for return of the dispute domain names.

    I know where you're coming from, but there is such a thing as "serving out of jurisdiction" in exceptional circumstances, such as location, ill-health, injustice, human rights, etc.

    Adrian, "you can't serve out of jurisdiction" by filing suit against the NAF and the UDRP panel in a British court, the British court has no jurisdiction over the NAF and the UDRP panel (meaning, it has no power over them in Britain). Regardless of what people may be telling you over there, it can't be done. Even under some dreamed up, "human rights" or "I'm too sick or too poor" defense. It won't work.

    Bulkregister's location in Maryland (and it's proximity to DC & Virginia) has nothing to do with AOL. YOU chose to use Bulkregister.com for your domain name purchases, and under the registration agreement, Bulkregister & Maryland has jurisdiction in cases involving the domain names.

    As much as you'd like to get some revenge on the NAF and the UDRP panel, they treated you fairly in deciding the case. You can't get jurisdiction over them in the UK. Even a bad lawyer can be found in the US for cheap. Stop listening to the voices who are telling you to sue in the UK. It won't work.
