Rheem Manufacturing Company secures Rheem.XYZ in WIPO Case

Whois XML Api

Rheem Manufacturing Company is an American privately held manufacturer that produces residential and commercial water heaters and boilers, as well as heating, ventilating and air conditioning equipment. The company also produces and sells products under the Ruud brand name. It is a subsidiary of Paloma Industries.

The company operates on Rheem.com and has offices globally with manufacturing facilities still in the USA, Canada, Australia, Mexica and China, The domain name Rheem.XYZ was registered on the 26th of March 2020 and then Rheem subsequently filed a WIPO case – number D2020-0873 on the 9th of April 2020.

The company doesn’t appear to own all the TLDs which, I personally believe is a massive mistake, you can still register Rheem.co.uk, Instead for the UK website that there agent uses (not Rheem themselves) they use RheemAC.eu,  even just to protect your brand in countries where you operate or plan to operate a company with millions in revenue you should spend the dollars to protect their brand and save costly WIPO cases, They also have another active case on Rheem.Store, WIPO case number D2020-1282, This domain name was registered on the 27th of April 2020 and appears to be parked at present, registrant details in whois states “Schwartz” – I can see this being another win for Rheem Manufacturing Company.
