Out of the #blue : #Domain veteran hit with his first ever #UDRP
Domain veteran, Bill Karamouzis, is focused on entrepreneurship and generic domain investments.
The Canadian domain investor announced that he was threatened with his first ever UDRP notice, for a new gTLD domain that is definitely generic: Blue.app.
Bill Kara’s tweet marveled at the fact that the color is being claimed via the UDRP process, by Blue Cross Blue Shield.
