A company that helps optimize warehouses has been found to have engaged of reverse domain name hijacking.

Element Logic AS filed a dispute (pdf) with World Intellectual Property Organization against the domain name ElementLogic.com. The domain registrant didn’t respond to the dispute, but he apparently registered the domain name in 2003.

The Complainant didn’t adopt the name Element Logic until after the domain was registered. Thus, proving that the domain was registered in bad faith was impossible.

Panelist Andrew D. S. Lothian noted the impossibility of finding bad faith, and also some contradictory (or at least ambiguous) information provided by the Complainant to find that this was a case of reverse domain name hijacking.

Berkley Sweetapple Law represented the Complainant.
