Kate Spade files complaints over .co and .xxx domains

Company upset over Kate Spade domain names.

Kate SpadeFashion brand Kate Spade, LLC has filed UDRP complaints at World Intellectual Property Organization against the owners of two domain names: and resolves to a page announcing that the domain name is for sale; the .xxx domain goes to a domain name registrar “coming soon” page.

Kate Spade has filed UDRP complaints before — but these are the first two since 2008. That makes me think the company just became aware of “new” domain extensions such as .co and .xxx.

Both top level domain names offered sunrise periods during which the company could have acquired (or blocked, in the case of .xxx) the domains for a fraction of the cost of a UDRP filing.

The company was successful in its previous four UDRP cases filed between 2002 and 2008.
