Chess great Gary Kasparov has filed a UDRP action with the National Arbitration Forum over four domain names:,,,

The domains are registered to an individual in Illinois, USA whose surname is not “Kasparov” according to the WHOIS records and who is using the domains as parking pages.

Interestingly, none of the links, images, banners etc… on the pages relate to chess or Mr. Kasparov. However, an individual with the same name as the registrant is also listed as a donor to the United States Chess Federation.  Mr. Kasparov of course is a world chess champion, activist, and the head of the Kasparov Chess Foundation.   He also owns several trademarks for KASPAROV that are registered with the USPTO.
