Jay Freeman aka Saurik, founder of SaurikIT, LLC ( owns a U.S. trademark for “Cydia” ) has filed a lawsuit against Cydia.com for allegedly infringing on the Cydia trademark.
Earlier this year it filed a UDRP to get Cydia.com. The UDRP panel ruled against SaurikIT, noting that the domain name was registered six years before Saurikit started using the name Cydia.
The company’s in rem lawsuit against the Cydia.com domain name alleges that the owner of the domain name changed the content of the page from a parked page to one about Apple products after it contacted him.
Although the lawsuit (pdf) goes through details of the plaintiff’s communications with the domain owner, it strangely omits discussion about its domain name arbitration loss.
