We Buy Any Car UDRPs webuyanymotors.com

If you live in the UK, you’ve probably seen the annoying-as-hell (yet consequently effective) WeBuyAnyCar.com commercials on TV.

Now the company is going after the domain webuyanymotors.com, owned by another British company with a similar business model, with a UDRP proceeding.

WeBuyAnyCar has obviously spent a fair bit of money building its brand up recently, but are “car” and “motors” really confusingly similar?

Trying singing along to the commercial using “motors”. It just doesn’t scan properly.

    webuyanycars.com is taken by another company. They should file a UDRP against webuyanycars.com instead of webuyanymotor.com.

    How can they go after motors when the plural of their domain:

    WeBuyAnyCars.com is being used by another company?

    Looks like their logic is leaking oil.

    Probably going to have a tough time. And failing in a UDRP just drives up the settlement / purchase price on the back end. Still, may depend on what’s being done with webuyanymotors.com. Looks like a competing business to me – which means trademark infringement lawsuit, not UDRP arbitration.

    I read webuyanycars is being used by a bunch of fraudsters. Im suprised they havent been sued by now for giving the original webuyanycar a bad name

    WeBuyAnyCar won a UDRP action for webuyanycars.com recently.
