    I actually think the UDRP is quite good, but only WHEN IT IS FOLLOWED correctly

    I think, like most people, it needs improving, but I do not hate the UDRP Policy as it basically a good framework to resolve domain name disputes

    The UDRP was followed correctly in your case, you were a squatter and you ADMITTED you had no rights in those domain names. The panel used their disrection, as allowed under the UDRP and the Rules, not to admit your extra filings. Case closed. Live with it.

    So just what was specifically improper or unfair about your own UDRP case? You keep saying how unfair it is, but I fail to see any specific unfairness about your case other than the general unfairness of the UDRP as a whole, but now you're saying that you think the policy is actually good. Your own case, where you registered various names specifically referring to AOL's Instant Messenger, hardly compares in unfairness to cases where generic words like "Canadian" and "heel" were allowed to be reverse-hijacked by trademark owners.

    Hear, hear. Good post Dan. You are right. No comparison of his case with the registrants of heel.com, barcelona.com, Canadian.biz, and now, Greatbarrierreef.biz.
