    Anyone can file a lawsuit and typically the side with the deeper pockets $ wins. That's how things work in the US. Although, given that the owner of the domain in this article had it long before the startup he probably has a good case for keeping the domain.

    Lol what a typical greedy startup gimp.
    Surely the startup that filed the lawsuit has been scammed by their own lawyer into false hopes of being able to simply take the domain..
    Another reason I would never hold my important domains with Western registrars.

    They can kiss his [email protected]#, law doesn't work backwards, with some legal help he should be able to turn the table, sue them for wasted time, expenses and plus some compensations. Wish him all the best, and hope that the greedy start up will be buried so deep in their ars' and never see the daylight again.

    the domain owner sounds like a domain investor, not a domain squatter in this case. seems like he got the unfair side of the deal.
