Cybersquatting cases down a bit in the UK

The number of cybersquatting complaints filed with Nominet declined slightly in 2018, according to the registry.

Nominet’s Dispute Resolution Service, which is a bit like the UDRP, handled 671 cases last year, compared to 712 in 2017.

The number of domains at issue was down from 783 to 763.

The slight decline appears to be because fewer complaints were filed against .org.uk, .me.uk and plain .uk domains.

The number of .co.uk registrations challenged was flat between 2017 and 2018 at 617 domains.

Only 49% of cases resulted in the disputed domain being transferred, according to the registry’s annual report (pdf).
