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 Audi.cars and Audi.auto. 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 Audi.car (singular). As of now, no UDRP has been filed against the domain name. The Audi.cars/.auto case is the first UDRP filed on the automotive-themed domain names, which are backed by a partnership between XYZ and Uniregistry.
