Infamous typosquatter loses more domains

, posted: 12-Jun-2008 22:33

E-Promote have just lost their 6th domain dispute resolution in New Zealand with the awarding of three typo domain names to trademark owner TelstraClear.


telstaclear.co.nz, telsraclear.co.nz and telstarclear.co.nz are all obvious misplellings of telstraclear.co.nz and the international telecommunications company had no problems in winning their DRS case against the typosquatter.


Like with many of their previous cases, E-Promote didn't both contesting the dispute. Without such cases going to the courts - i.e. without any monetary penalties - you can't help but wonder whether typosquatting continues as a profitable business venture for those who dare to risk the consequences of possible legal action.
