LOS ANGELES — The parent company of Clips4Sale.com, one of the adult entertainment industry’s leading brands with its downloadable video clip site, keeps on having to file UDRP complaints at a prolific rate.
Just this year alone Wiluna Holdings has filed 48 cases involving cybersquatting and typosquatting domain names, some involving similarly themed websites. Prior to 2018, the company took action only against seven domain names that were imposters.
For each of the 48 UDRP cases filed this year it was a slam dunk for Wiluna’s counsel, which was able to recoup the domains for the famous website.
Launched in 2003, Clips4Sale offers perhaps the most clips — 7 million — of mainstream, kink and fetish content on the market.
The latest UDRP proceeding involved Clips4Asle.com, which was transferred to Wiluna on Friday from a company called New Venture Services, which registered the domain in June 2017.
Like nearly all of the other cases, an arbitrator decided that the domain name was used to monetarily exploit (through links this time around) the Clips4Sale trade name, which was properly trademarked with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office back in 2003, and registered in bad faith.
So far, Wiluna has more than four dozen typo’d domain names it has collected through UDRP proceedings, everything from Clips4Ale.com to Clips4Free.com to Dlips4Sale.com.
