Anyone dealt with icann before?
There's a domain name I want. It's not like Ziperdedoo.com it's the name of what it does, and it's been parked for over a decade, currently it hosts a circular redirect. Wayback machine is how I know it's been marked ALL that time.
The guy behind it wants to use it to "advertise" a "solution" that quite literally makes stuff worse (this isn't my judgment, there is absolutely no need for it) but has no intent of developing it.
He also claims to have 25k other domains which he sells.
I'm UK, so suppose I go for thing.co.uk or thing.uk for now say, is there any grounds, now or in that .uk future where I could ask (an approved dispute solving body of) ICANN to step in and go "look, you've not done anything with it ever" or something?
I've read https://www.icann.org/resources/pages/policy-2012-02-25-en and it seems to me like it only covers someone registering an upcoming product. Like if I were to register, I dunno, dietpepsi.com and sell something I called dietpepsi.com that was nothing to do with pepsi.
I'm not sure what to do.
There are no "i"s to switch to "y"s in the name, nor "er" to change to "r" (this is a joke, mocking the current state of things)
