Atlanta.com Mistakenly Named in Domain Dispute

Atlanta.com included in UDRP by accident.

My heart skipped a beat today when I saw that Atlanta.com had been served with a domain arbitration notice. But then I quickly figured out that this is some sort of clerical error.

Automobile Atlanta, Inc. filed a case with National Arbitration Forum for six domains including automobileatlanta.com, autoatlanta.net, automobileatlanta.net, dr914.com, and lifeinhighgear.com. Oh yeah, and a minor domain name called Atlanta.com was included in the complaint listed on National Arbitration Forum’s web site.

But the other five domains are owned by a different party than Atlanta.com, which is owned by geo-magnate Skip Hoagland. When I did a little searching I found that this case is a refile of a previous case decided back in January. The one difference in domains this time around is that, instead of AutoAtlanta.com in the first case, this case includes just Atlanta.com. Either the complainant or National Arbitration Forum left off “auto” before the domain. Woops.

I assume that’s easy to fix, since technically an individual case can’t go forward against two different domain owners. But I’m sure it’s causing a headache for Hoagland to get the error fixed.
