    I personally found this particular UDRp case interesting
    and funny at the same time. It is funny because of the
    claim by the complaintant that they felt that their
    DN was essentially "Famous" as if it was a famous mark (TM)
    using the IPC's (Intelectual Property Constituency's)
    frequently bogus argument to justify their complaint.
    In addition the other funny part is that the respondant
    of the DN in question or dvla.com did not reapond as if
    the UDRP was not really relevant and yet won because of the
    bogus argument of the Famous Mark argument by the complaintant,
    hence the pannel arrived at a seemingly just a bogus decision
    as to in effect say a reverse Domain Name Hijacking was
    being attempted by the complaintant before the actual fact, yet
    using the UDRP to bolster it's bogus claim anyway.
    Simply amazing, yet compleatly stupid on the part of both
    the complaintant and the Panel!

    So the DVLA decide to follow the fine example of the Financial Services Authority, which attempted to reverse-hijack fsa.co.uk from a steel company.

    Good to see that these various government agencies are clued-up as to what all these domain names actually do...
