    I agree that the system is friendly towards the plaintiff, while the burden of proof is always put on the defendant. However, I think you are reaching in a very journalistical way, when you publish the story under the headline "WIPO Arbitrator Says Criticism=Bad Faith". That can simply not be derived from this decision.

    The only thing derived from this decision is that the burden of proof is put on the defendant and that the defendant screwed up. I really like your web site, but it would be even better if you try to maintain a more academic approach to the subject. I think it is controversial enough, without you adding extras to it .-)

    Best regards,

    I am the screw up in question, however I do not agree that I should have to fight for the right to the reg-vardy.com domain, I am not a competitor of regvardy and never have been and never will be, according to the wording of the policy I win - Case Closed.

    The reason I did not fight this case apart from the above was simple, when i replied that reg vardy were treating wipo with the same contempt as they did my customer complaint it was because there version of how the complaint came about was a total fabrication -LIES - what was the point in entering a discusion, when they were allowed to submit lie after lie as evidence.

    Also take into account that the domain name its self only brought approx 2% of the visitors to my site, the rest came from search engine placement which I worked hard to achive, so the name its self was not that important, the fact that reg vardy had to pay wipo fee's and no doubt solicitors fees ect to gain control was a bonus.

    If reg vardy had approached me with a resonable offer of compensation (alot less than they have spent on fee's) I would have been happy to turn the name over to them.

    My site was a warning to potencial customers, that message has been sent to tens of thousands of potencial reg vardy customers, you do the math and tell me who lost......
