VirtualPoint, the same company that owns the UDRPsearch website, has sued a maker of electric motorcycles in a domain name dispute.

According to the lawsuit (pdf), VirtualPoint acquired the domain earlier this year. NameBio records show that it sold in a GoDaddy auction for $1,026. (It also sold at GoDaddy the prior year for $1,009.)

Shortly after that, VirtualPoint received purchase inquiries through a broker that did not identify itself as working with the company Venturi, which owns the brand Voxan.

The two parties couldn’t reach an agreement. Venturi’s final offer was $40,050, according to the lawsuit. VirtualPoint’s final offer was $144,800.

Venturi then filed a UDRP with World Intellectual Property Organization that has not yet been decided.

VirtualPoint is seeking declaratory judgment that it’s not infringing Venturi’s mark, and for Venturi’s trademark to be canceled. Brett Lewis of Lewis & Lin is representing VirtualPoint.
