Ron Paul case -- "don't look a gift horse in the mouth"

Respondent has requested, based on the evidence presented, that the Panel make a finding of Reverse Domain Name Hijacking. In view of the unique facts of this case, in which the evidence demonstrates that Respondent offered to give the Domain Name ronpaul.org to Complainant for no charge, with no strings attached, the Panel is inclined to agree. Instead of accepting the Domain Name, Complainant brought this proceeding. A finding of Reverse Domain Name Hijacking seems to this Panel to be appropriate in the circumstances.
Breaking: Ron Paul found guilty of reverse domain name hijacking - Domain Name Wire: ". . . Paul did not prove a lack of rights or legitimate interest in the domain by the respondent. As a result, the panel ruled the domain name should remain with its current owner. A UDRP arbitration panel will find so-called reverse domain name hijacking when it believes that a case was filed in bad faith in abuse of the administrative proceedings. Both cases have a number of unique circumstances and conclusions, and show the convoluted ownership trail for the domains. They’re worth reading. There is no financial penalty for reverse domain name hijacking in a UDRP domain dispute."
