Discussion in 'Detagged or Suspended UK Domain Names' started by rawkinrich, Oct 20, 2009.
Or perhaps he was trying to see if they'd sell it to him before it dropped....
On a serious note, if anyone did pick this up - could they argue that as the name had been dropped by RA (who are big enough and IT savvy enough to know what they're up to), they thought it was reasonable to presume they no longer wanted it...?
Except in the real world it doesn't quite work like that with terms that could be associated with just one unique party such as in this case. Just because you can register it doesn't mean you have the right to.
I appreciate that normally - but here the circumstances would be slightly different. The 'one unique party' have actively (or at least passively) acted to show they no longer want the domain.
Not relevant here now, but could be some other time...
It's not that the company has explicitly declared that they have no interest in the domain. It's that those responsible for managing intellectual property within the company are patently incompetent, as one presumes are senior managament too as they seem to be unaware of the shortcomings of their IP staff.
OK - I was playing devil's advocate to an extent. ;-)
ah yes, sorry
stelios seems a nice guy, theo is the twat :-D
Pred, you mean on DNF?
not sure why I called, felt like a good thing to do at the time, not as if its got resale value, domainers on here want us to be tm free so guess some are happy with the action, im indifferent, spur of the moment thing.
They are so stoopid they applied to join the UK Top 200 on the stock exchange, then got upset when it was pointed out that they are Irish and ineligible.
That name is always on a redirect to the .com, anyway.
No chance now, but I could have put a plan together for "using it" so they had to buy it back. You just need an idea ... but of course, the idea is 40p extra ...
That makes no sense at all. I've taken a company public before. Do you know how many lawyers and accountants it takes? If they were ineligible because they were Irish, they would have been informed at the outset as a matter of course. What do you mean by 'applied to join the top 200'? Which 'top 200'?
You're wrong there Crabfoot, they've been a registered company in the UK since 1985, based at Stansted.
Oh, by the way, two limited companies named Ryan Air Conditioning.. could have used that name too!
I don't remember
It was all something to do with (I think) FT listings when a company went to the wall about ten years ago. Ryanair jumped in with suggestions they should be included.
LOL I cant be bothered to Google up old rubbish to satisfy pedants ...
