Claim on domain

Msg#: 4618175 posted 6:24 pm on Oct 21, 2013 (gmt 0)

I hope there are someone here who can help me a bit.
I have recently been contacted by someone who are involved with a charity with a name similar to my domain. And now they want to buy my domain, or if i refuse and i do, they say they will go trough WIPO in order to lay a claim on my domain.
Can it really be right that they can do that on a domain that are older then they are and are registered in a different country?

This "cough" colorful site [hallofshame.com...] may be worth a read. It highlights several cases where older domains are subjected to claims by newly registered trademarks.

Each of the cases highlighted has a link to the original decision, which gives a wealth of information including the panelists reasoning behind their rulings. It also provides a good source of sucessful lawyers and law firms.
