Panel sees through seemingly spurious claims by medical equipment seller.

.Med applicant HEXAP SAS has staved off an attack on its promotional web sites, and in a UDRP.

The company behind medical supplies company filed the complaint in June. has nothing to do with top level domain names, but it has applied for a trademark for “dotmed” as a top level domain.

It has also been battling trademark attempts by .med applicants, specifically HEXAP.

Its UDRP complaint was ambitious at best. It claimed that HEXAP wasn’t making a bona fide use of the domains and was offering services competitive and/or related to This seems like quite a stretch, to put it mildly. also tried to characterize HEXAP as a cybersquatter, saying it has registered 120 domain names, most of which are “warehoused”. HEXAP is a web hosting company and had registered the domains for web sites.

The panelist found that HEXAP has rights or legitimate interests in the domain names. Unfortunately, panelist Christopher J. Pibus copped out on considering reverse domain name hijacking despite HEXAP asking for it.
