Attorney Anita J. Pancholi of Law Firm Golan & Christie representing Quality Logo Products Inc. loses UDRP case in an attempt to unfairly grab 14 year old QLP.com domain name.

WIPO Panelist called the Quality Logo Products' case a "Groundless Complaint", "Irresponsible Conduct" and "
an Abuse of the UDRP Process".


Quality Logo Products Inc (Bret Bonnet and Michael Wenger) represented by Anita J. Pancholi and Beverly A. Berneman of Chicago based Law Firm Golan & Christie had their complaint denied by WIPO the World Intellectual Property Organisation.

  Anita J. Pancholi (at that time working for Golan & Christie) filed the UDRP case against Get On The Web Limited.

Anita Pancholi's profile with Golan & Christie showed her area of practice including Intellectual Property.

According to Linkedin Anita Pancholi has since left Golan & Christie and now works as an attorney at the Chicago office of Law Firm Seyfarth Shaw LLP. Anita Pancholi's Seyfarth profile appears to have overlooked her previous Intellectual Property experience at Golan & Christie.


The UDRP case by law firm Golan and Christie representing Quality Logo Products Inc. regarding the 14 year old QLP.com domain name (registered and used years before Quality Logo Products even existed) was called a "Groundless Complaint" and "an Abuse of the UDRP process"..

See other similar recent UDRP cases regarding domain names registered years before complainants existed which Panelists variously call "a Baseless Complaint", "a Foolish Waste of Time", "Devoid of Merit", "Borders on the Absurd" and which talks of Johnny-Come-Lately trademark owners who register trademarks and try to seize pre-existing domain names.

There are numerous sources for "Reverse Domain Name Hijacking".  Amongst these are RDNH.com and HallOfShame.com (which includes a current list of those found guilty of trying to Reverse Hijack a Domain Name in which they had no legal rights. In other words they tried to bully the rightful owners into relinquishing their property and forcing these innocent parties to spend thousands to defend what they already own).
