International Olympic Committee wins Olympics typo from “Mike”

The International Olympic Committee won a typo domain in a UDRP.

I got a chuckle reading a UDRP the International Olympic Committee (IOC) just won.

The IOC filed a cybersquatting claim against the typo domain olypmics .com. The domain owner didn’t respond and it was a straightforward case for the World Intellectual Property Organization panelist.

What made me laugh was the respondent’s identity. Usually, you’ll see a few details about the registrant, such as their company name or full name, followed by a specific location. But this UDRP merely states:

Respondent is Mike, Canada.

Ah yes, Mike from Canada. I know him well.

The IOC is a prolific UDRP filer and is generally successful with its cases. Recently, it won an important case for a 55-character domain with nine hyphens.

It doesn’t always win, though.
