    The registrants filed their notice of appeal with the district court of March 22, 2002 (added to the docket by the court on March 25, 2002), the first step in appealing the decision to the 4th Circuit. Check out the UDRP-Court Challenge Database on UDRPlaw.net, http://www.udrplaw.net/UDRPappeals.htm, to track the case, as well as the site's helpful list of City Name decisions, located at: http://www.udrplaw.net/CityNamesresources.htm.

    The judge is on crack. The Barcelona city council is using the pro government/corporate bias that exists in the domain dispute resolution process to wrest barcelona.com for its lawful registrant.

    The registrants deserve their name back. I hope they win on appeal.

    If there is a contest for the worse judge of the year, this judge has got my vote.

    I wonder if the lawyer for barcelona.com did a good job of presenting their side? Given some of the dubious things the judge said, I question that. For one thing, a (long) list of city-named sites that are not created or endorsed by the city governments should have been brought up. (For instance, shreveport.net, a site I was involved with in the past that has information about Shreveport, Louisiana, but is not the official city government site; nor is that at shreveport.com, another independent city-info site; the official site is where it belongs at ci.shreveport.la.us.)

    The many UDRP decisions favoring the respondent in geographical-name cases (barcelona.com was the rare, aberrant exception) should also have been brought up forcefully.

    This is a perfect case for the EFF. They step up to defend real cybersquatters, why not step up to defend people who made legitimate use of domain name. That would make too much sense.
