  • Grubhub online delivery platform buys thousands of domains without owner's consent

    Came across this interesting news. Predatory or pre-emptive registration of domains. Totally unethical whichever way you look at it.
    Surprisingly this doesn't come across cybersquatting.

    In response to a detailed list of questions, GrubHub emailed the following statement: “Grubhub has never cybersquatted, which is identified by ICANN as ‘generally bad faith registration of another person’s trademark in a domain name.’ As a service to our restaurants, we have created microsites for them as another source of orders and to increase their online brand presence. Additionally, we have registered domains on their behalf, consistent with our restaurant contracts. We no longer provide that service and it has always been our practice to transfer the domain to the restaurant as soon as they request it.”

    As far as these claims are true, I am certain that it is not cybersquatting.

      I believe it is not a case of cybersquatting but helping small businesses grow by providing them instant branding through their dedicated domain names.
