Helen Bornemann is Intellectual Property Manager with the brewery so should certainly know right from wrong. This is a clear case of bullying. She's taken domains to the WIPO before and will be entirely aware that it is required that the current holder has no legitimate interest in the name.
We need a way to deal with these "bullying" tactics ...
Agreed entirely. Something like self representation and a fixed fee to claim fixed awards for lawyer-mediated harassment (fixed claim per letter, per false claim and per threat). The lawyer would need to demonstrate reasonable legal basis for the threat and all other claims made. No legal costs regardless of outcome as this is self representation and the laywer appears in a personal capacity to make payment from personal funds.
