Less than rosy outcome for law firm in UDRP complaints

A set of related complaints filed under the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) by partners from the law firm Proskauer Rose LLP for the transfer of domain names containing their personal names have been rejected on the grounds that the complainants did not have a trademark in their names (Mashberg v Cox (Case D2011-0677); Leccese v Cox (Case D2011-0679); Fagin v Cox (Case D2011-0678)). A related complaint filed by the law firm itself for the transfer of the domain name ‘proskauerlawfirm.com’ was also rejected because the matter was not deemed to fall within the scope of the UDRP (Proskauer Rose LLP v Turner (Case D2011-0675)).
