rebelde.com – David Beats Goliath, Dori Media International Loses Battle for Domain

Domain Name Wire has a posting on a dispute over the domain name rebelde.com, a dispute in which for once the little guy beat the big guy.

Domain Name Wire writes:
Fred McCaw was a bit late to the domain market. Getting started in 1999, he realized all of the good english-language domains were registered. So he registered generic domains in foreign languages, including his native Filipino. The first domain he registered was Rebelde.com, which means “rebel” in Spanish and Filipino. Over the holidays McCaw successfully defended a reverse domain hijacking attempt by media company Dori Media International, which has a spanish language soap opera called “Rebelde”.
