Algunos nos preguntamos que fue, o que ha sido de yahoo.tel, y aunque en google, la información que nos da es que ha pasado a manos de yahoo, la realidad es que al buscar en whois, sigue apareciendo david blanco, y que al entrar en yahoo.tel, está redirigido a internautas.org, lo cual poco parece tener que ver con yahoo
Yahoo still owns yahoo.tel
Yahoo has won the battle for domain name yahoo.tel. The Internet company had four months time to register her .tel domain, but was apparently forgotten. So a Spanish blogger got it. Now finally Yahoo still get her own .tel domain.
The National Arbitration Forum, which treated the case, said David Blanco Ramos had registered the domain name to profit from the reputation of Yahoo. The Spaniard used yahoo.tel to forward visitors to his blog. According to the arbitration, the blogger infringed the trademark and its a violation of the Yahoo brand. So the case was handled easily.
Yahoo had the opportunity to use its trademark and register the .tel domain name between last October and February this year. Because of the laxity of Yahoo it has become relatively expensive for the Internet company. Instead of register the name in an early stage and a tidy $ 300, now Yahoo has to pay at least $ 1500 because of the legal proceedings.
It appears that even with the Sunrise principle, by using the trademark and save many expensive and cumbersome procedures, some attentiveness is still needed. Even multinationals like Yahoo underestimate the eagerness of people like David Blanco Ramos, who want to profit on the success of these big brands.
