    Audi files cybersquatting complaint against owner of expensive .cars and .auto domain names.


    With an annual price tag of over $2,000, you’d think that all cybersquatters would be deterred from registering famous brands in the .car, .cars and .auto top level domains.

    You’d be wrong.

    Car maker Audi has filed a UDRP against the registrant of and Barring some bizarre circumstances, the person who registered these two domain names will lose the $5,000 he spent to register the two domain names.

    The owner of these two domains isn’t the only person to register an expensive domain that matches the name of a car maker. Someone in China registered (singular). As of now, no UDRP has been filed against the domain name.

    The case is the first UDRP filed on the automotive-themed domain names, which are backed by a partnership between XYZ and Uniregistry.
